Randy Livingston (born April 2, 1975) is a former American professional basketball player who last played point guard for the NBA Development League's Idaho Stampede. He stands 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m) and weighs 209 lb (95 kg). From 2010 to 2012, he was the head coach for the Idaho Stampede.[1]

Livingston attended New Orleans' Isidore Newman School along with standout quarterback Peyton Manning, where he was named the High School co-player of the year in 1992 (with Jason Kidd) and 1993 (with Rasheed Wallace). Livingston also played in the McDonald's All-American Game and Magic's Roundball Classic. He was ranked as the #1 player in the 1993 class, over Rasheed Wallace, and Jerry Stackhouse.

After high school, Livingston attended Louisiana State University but only appeared in 32 games over two seasons because of knee problems. He was drafted by the Houston Rockets in the second round (42nd overall) of the 1996 NBA Draft, later he was signed as a free agent by the Atlanta Hawks in his second year. He played for the Phoenix Suns during the 1999 season, playing his most consistent season (79 games, 14 mpg, 4.8 points, 1.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game). He also played with the Suns during the 2000 season, which was the only time in his NBA career that he played on one team for two consecutive years.

Afterwards, Livingston appeared sporadically (two games) for the Golden State Warriors during the following season, played for the Seattle SuperSonics in 2001-02, also dressing up with two teams in the CBA. He would play briefly for the New Orleans Hornets during 2002-03, for the Los Angeles Clippers during the following and with the Utah Jazz in 2004-05.

Livingston was drafted in the 2005 AAPBL Draft, but the league folded soon thereafter. He spent the beginning of 2005-06 in the Turkish league, playing for Galatasaray, and joined the NBA Development League's Stampede (for whom he had once played while the team competed in the CBA) in February 2006. He also appeared in five games with the Chicago Bulls in March. In 2006-07 he began with the Stampede once again but, on April 11, 2007, signed a contract for the remainder of the season with the SuperSonics, for a second time. This was due to almost simultaneous injuries to Earl Watson and Luke Ridnour.

In 2006-07's NBDL, Livingston's 12.0 points per game for the Stampede were tied for 44th in the league and his 10.5 assists second only to Will Conroy. The following season, as the Stampede were crowned the competition's winners after beating the Austin Toros 2-1, Livingston retired from professional basketball.[2] Although officially retired, the Erie Bayhawks of the D-League still drafted him in the expansion draft, in hopes of bringing him out of retirement.

After his stint coaching the Stampede, he moved to Australia, where he serves as a scout and coaching consultant.[3]
