7:20pm: Stockton has officially been waived, the Kings announced.
5:58pm: The Kings have waived point guard David Stockton, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports (via Twitter). Stockton’s contract was non-guaranteed, so Sacramento won’t be responsible for any salary as a result of this move.
Stockton, the son of NBA legend John Stockton, went undrafted in 2014 after four seasons at Gonzaga. The younger Stockton was in training camp with the Wizards last season but didn’t make it onto Washington’s regular season roster. The point guard originally joined the Kings during the 2014/15 campaign when the team inked him to a lone 10-day pact, but Stockton only appeared in one contest while on that deal, scoring one point in seven minutes of action. He later re-joined the team in April, signing a multiyear contract. Stockton spent the bulk of last season in the D-League with the Reno Bighorns, Sacramento’s affiliate. In 43 D-League appearances he averaged a stellar 20.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 9.9 assists.
Parting ways with Stockton reduces Sacramento’s roster count to 15 players, which is the regular season maximum.
