Shaun-LivingstonNBA free agency can be a whirlwind of news to keep up with, so we’ll try to keep you updated as much as possible on the latest movement. And so far, the latest news involves two combo guards; one changing locations and the other staying put.

Tuesday night, free agent guard Shaun Livingston agreed to a three-year deal with the Golden State Warriors worth about $19 million. Wednesday, reports surfaced that the Celtics have re-signed restricted free agent Avery Bradley to the tune of $32 million over four years.

Livingston has made the rounds but has developed into a solid guard in recent seasons following one of the worst knee injuries in recent memory he suffered back in 2007. He was an integral part of the Nets rotation last season and can fill in at either guard position, giving the Warriors a capable back-up in/when they lose Steve Blake this summer.

Bradley has been with the Celtics his entire career and took on a larger offensive role last season, averaging 13.5 points and shooting just under %40 from three. He’s not the best at creating his own shot but Bradley is a All-Defensive caliber defensive role player and at just 23 appears to fit well with the Celtics future guard rotation, with or without Rajon Rondo.

Stay tuned for more free agency news as it becomes available.
