With a full 15-man roster, there wasn’t room for a fan favorite.
The Jazz waived point guard David Stockton, son of Utah’s Hall-of-Fame point guard John Stockton, on Tuesday afternoon.
In March, the Jazz signed Stockton to two 10-day contracts, then finished the season out by giving him a contract for the rest of the season, with an added non-guaranteed year. But when the Jazz were able to keep most of their own free agents, as well as newcomer Grayson Allen, Stockton’s place on the 15-man roster was no longer free.
In the end, Stockton played in three regular season and two playoff games for the Jazz, scoring a total of 12 points in about 15 minutes on the squad. Perhaps his biggest impact came as an ambassador for the franchise: last week, Stockton traveled around Utah as part of the Junior Jazz program, meeting fans from rural towns who came out for camps.
A German Bundesliga team, Medi Bayreuth, has announced that they have reached an agreement with Stockton for the 2018-19 season. David’s brother Michael plays for BG Göttingen in the same league.
