The Wizards have delivered the first sign of discontent with a team that lost its seventh game in and sunk to a franchise-worst 3-22 with Saturday’s 96-87 loss to the Detroit Pistons, announcing early Sunday that they have waived point guard Shaun Livingston and center Earl Barron.
The move leaves Washington with two open roster spots but just nine healthy players, given the injury absences of John Wall, Trevor Booker, A.J. Price and Trevor Ariza. Most importantly, the Wizards currently have no point guards besides Jordan Crawford.
Presumably, that means there’s some sort of trade in the works that will bring the Wizards help at the point and potentially more.
Livingston averaged 3.7 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 17 games (four starts) after being signed as a free agent on November 15. Barron, who was originally signed as a free agent in September prior to training camp, averaged 2.5 points and 3.9 rebounds in 11 games (one start).
