Sacramento Kings waive David Stockton

The Sacramento Kings announced today that they have cut their most adorable player, David Stockton.  This doesn't come as too much of a surprise as the Kings needed to cut someone to comply with the league's 15 man roster limit before the season and the only other real candidate, Eric Moreland, played much better this preseason.

Stockton, son of NBA legend John Stockton, will almost assuredly go back to Sacramento's D-League affiliate in Reno.  He played 3 games for the Sacramento Kings last season and averaged 2.7 points and 3.0 assists in a 11 minutes a game.  Most of that came from his 5 point, 7 assist effort in the final game of the season, a 122-99 victory over the L.A. Lakers.

I wouldn't count out Stockton's NBA future just yet.  He's shown an ability to make plays for others and is a decent three point shooter as well.  In Reno's high-octane offense last season he 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.

With this cut, it looks like the 2015-16 Kings roster is finally set.  The team will kick off their season at home in just under a week.
