BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) — Milwaukee Bucks guard Shaun Livingston hasn’t yet signed to play for a minor league team in Illinois. The team’s owner says he still could.
The Central Illinois Drive of Bloomington, Ill., said this week that the team was signing an NBA player for its first season. Team co-owner Scott Henderson said the player was Peoria, Ill. native Livingston.
Henderson on Friday clarified that Livingston would only sign if the NBA lockout continues until the Premier Basketball League season starts in January and if other options don’t come along.
Livingston will help promote the team in the meantime. Livingston is friends with Drive coach A.J. Guyton and player Daniel Ruffin.
