You can look at field goal percentage in a vacuum I'm not going to. Clint capela on the rockets shot 63% this year put him in the Hall of Fame then.
Kevin Durant 54% is much more impressive than Shaun Livingston's 55%.
He also had a lot of bad turnovers this year and mistakes as he did in the 2016 finals.
To me it's really not a big deal either way but with so many free agents this year things are getting expensive and Livingston had a down year

Playing with former MVPs Steph Curry and Kevin Durant has obvious benefits, but the team was outscored by 3.9 net points per 100 possessions when Livingston was on the court without those two superstars, roughly equal to the performance by the New York Knicks this past season.
Livingston also has an old-school element to his game, preferring to post-up smaller guards rather than act as a floor general out of the pick and roll or in transition. Perhaps some of that is due to being part of a super team, but that doesn’t excuse his low output in the post (he scores 40 percent of the time, 13th of 16 guards with at least 20 possessions) nor his ineffectiveness as a spot-up shooter (25 percent shooting with a 20 percent turnover rate).
His average game score, a metric created by John Hollinger to give a rough measure of a player’s productivity for a single game, of 4.2 as a reserve ranks Livingston 42nd out of 46 backup guards playing at least 1,000 minutes in 2016-17.
According to ESPN’s Chris Haynes, Livingstons contract would necessitate production similar to Dwyane Wade of the Chicago Bulls or Tony Allen of the Memphis Grizzlies (each with 3.5 wins above replacement in 2016-17), a level Livingston has reached once in his career (3.5 wins above replacement in 2013-14 with the Brooklyn Nets).
