Former Kings point guard David Stockton, son of Hall-of-Famer John Stockton, has rejoined Sacramento’s D-League affiliate, as the team announced and Chris Reichert of Upside & Motor reports (Twitter link). The team released Kings camp cut Marshall Henderson to make room, Reichert also reports (Twitter link). Stockton was originally with the Kings D-League team, the Reno Bighorns, in between his release from the Wizards and his time with the big club in Sacramento last season. The Kings inked Stockton to a 10-day contract and later a multiyear pact, but that deal didn’t include any guaranteed salary for this season, and they cut him at the end of the preseason.
Stockton, 24, impressed while in the D-League the first time around, notching 20.1 points, 9.9 assists and 3.4 turnovers in 30.5 minutes per game. He was unable to duplicate that success at the NBA level, appearing in only three regular season games last season and three preseason games this fall, with limited minutes.
The 25-year-old Henderson was a surprise preseason signing for the Kings and appeared in only one exhibition contest. The shooting guard averaged 6.8 points in only 11.1 minutes per game with 9 for 22 3-point shooting across four appearances for the Bighorns after the Kings allocated him to Reno as an affiliate player.
