Sacramento Kings have decided to waive David Stockton, according to sources. Eric Moreland has managed to secure a place in the Kings’ roster.
Both Moreland and Stockton played for the Reno Bighorns last season, which is a D-League associate of the Sacramento Kings. Stockton also appeared for the Kings in few games.
Stockton’s waiver announcement was surprising for many as he was the most adorable player in the roster. The Kings needed to cut their roster to 15 men prior to the regular season, and Moreland posted a much better display this preseason.
NBA legend John Stockton will now go to the D-League associate Reno Bighorns again. He played three games last season for the Kings, where he averaged 2.7 points and 3.0 assists in a 11 minutes a game. He displayed his merit in the team’s 122-99 victory over Los Angeles Lakers last season, scoring 5 points and 7 assists.
Stockton also averaged 20.1 points, 9.4 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 2.5 steals, all while shooting a very respectable 39.8% from three and 46.1% overall for Reno Bighorns‘ high-profile offense last season.
By cutting Stockton, the Kings have finalized their 15-men roster to start the regular season next week.
