Shaun Livingston has agreed to a two-year, $7 million contract with the Bobcats, Adrian Wojnarowski reports . There's also reportedly a non-guaranteed third year on the deal as well.

First off, good for Livingston. We all know what happened to him and how he's been working to get back. After some time in the D-League, a year with the Thunder and some time spent with the Wizards, Livingston has earned his way back to a multi-year contract.

Livingston is still only 24 years old (I know, just 24? ) and in 36 games for Washington, averaged 6.9 points and 3.6 assists per game. He's always been considered a unique talent because of his size for a point guard that goes along with his excellent court vision and passing ability.

But this signing could have bigger implications than just some feel-good vibes for Livingston. The Bobcats were rumored to be the most possible destination for Minnesota guard Ramon Sessions. Now with D.J. Augustin's backup position filled, Sessions is likely off Charlotte's radar. The other prime landing spot for Sessions has been Indiana.

Report: Bobcats sign Livingston

I met this cat accidentally in the summer years ago...what a cool level-headed guy he was!  Good for you Livningston!  I'm glad you have another chance to show you got game after that horrific injury when you played for the Lame Los Angeles Clippers.  I wish the Los Angeles Lakers could've signed you, but you did exactly what you have to do--rightfully get paid and have the opportunity to play for a quality organization with a fantastic Head Coach!  I'll be watching you regain your form starting next season....

What a great catch by the Bobcats.  As a Wizards fan, I was hoping the Wiz would have signed him to a multi-year deal.  I think he earned a roster spot after averaging 9 and 4 on a team that was just trying to hold it together until the draft.  He would have been great as the first guard off the Wizards bench.  I agree that Livingston should be given every opportunity to earn the number 1 PG job with the Bobcats.

I was under the impression that the Bobcats were in the market for a point guard to put AHEAD of D.J. Augustin, not behind him.  I hope they are not comfortable letting Augustine run that offense.

On the flip side, I have always liked Livingston, and wish him nothing but the best with the Bobcats.  Lol, especially since he is now with the Bobcats.
