Another former Gonzaga point guard is headed to the Indiana Pacers, or at least their G-League affiliate in Fort Wayne.
David Stockton’s returning player rights were acquired by the Fort Wayne Mad Ants from the Memphis Hustle on Monday, along with a 2023 3rd-round pick in the G League draft.
Memphis received the returning player rights to Derrick Walton Jr., the returning player rights to Kenny Williams, and a 1st-round pick in the exchange.
Stockton is currently playing with Team USA in the FIBA world cup qualifiers, where they are set to take on Columbia in Columbia on Monday.
Stockton is a G-League veteran, with 198 games under his belt dating back to 2014. He’s been a monster at that level, with career averages of 16.8 points, 6.7 assists, and 1.5 steals. He’s also made stops in Croatia, New Zealand, Bavaria, and Puerto Rico.
Stockton last played in the NBA in 2017-18 with the Utah Jazz, the team his father John famously played for for two decades.
While it seems unlikely Andrew Nembhard will spend much, if any, time in the G-League this season after he signed a three-year guaranteed contract, if he does he may end up playing alongside Stockton in a fun Gonzaga-heavy backcourt in Fort Wayne.
