When the Wizards took on the Orlando Magic at Amway Center last Wednesday, Earl Barron was the starting power forward and Shaun Livingston was the starting point guard. By early Sunday morning, both players were former Wizards.
Shortly after losing to the Detroit Pistons, 96-89, on Saturday at Verizon Center – their seventh straight defeat to drop to a franchise-worst 3-22 – the Wizards released Barron and Livingston to open up two roster spots that the team plans to fill with backcourt help, according to league sources.
Barron and Livingston were both on deals that would’ve become fully guaranteed next month and the Wizards cut ties with them in time to shake up a team headed nowhere quickly.
After two games, Livingston found himself in the starting lineup ahead of Price, but he injured his shoulder in the first quarter of a 108-106 double overtime loss to the Charlotte Bobcats and never looked the same.
