Lakers Sign David Stockton, Cut Jordan Caroline

The Lakers have made a change to their 20-man preseason roster, announcing today in a press release that they’ve signed guard David Stockton, waiving forward Jordan Caroline in a corresponding move.

Stockton, the son of Hall-of-Famer John Stockton, appeared in three games with the Kings during the 2014/15 season and three more with the Jazz in 2017/18. However, most of his professional career has been spent in the G League or in international leagues.

The South Bay Lakers – L.A.’s G League affiliate – acquired the 28-year-old’s NBAGL returning rights last month, so it looks like he’ll end up playing for South Bay this season. Assuming his new deal with the Lakers contains an Exhibit 10 clause, Stockton will be in line for a bonus worth up to $50K if he spends at least two months with the G League club.

Caroline is also a strong candidate to head to South Bay. The Lakers will have the ability to make the undrafted Nevada wing an affiliate player for their G League squad, assuming he doesn’t sign with another NBA team before the season begins.

    Nice this almost makes up for them not getting his dad out of retirement to be on that super team with Kobe, Shaq, The Mailman and The Glove!

    Stockton is trash. He played for the NZ Breakers the same team RJ Hampton has joined, in the NBL and was poo. In 10 games he averaged 8/3/4, so at 28 after a couple more years I doubt he will do anything.
    Caroline looked a good prospect he just finished his 4th year in college and averaged 17/10/2 which is basically what he averaged the two years prior in college.
