The Indiana Pacers brought their roster up to the maximum 20 players on Friday, inking former Baylor guard Kendall Brown to a two-way contract and signing four other players, including former Gonzaga point guard David Stockton.
Stockton will get a chance to compete for a roster spot in training camp, just two weeks after his returning player rights were traded from the G-League’s Memphis Hustle to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the G-League affiliate for Indiana.
If Stockton does make the Pacers roster he’ll unite with another former Gonzaga point guard, Andrew Nembhard, who was selected by Indiana with the 31st pick in the 2022 NBA draft.
Stockton is entering his ninth professional season, and is coming off a run with Team USA in the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers this past month.
Last season, Stockton played 14 games for Memphis’ G-League affiliate, averaging 11.2 points, 4.3 assists and 2.9 rebounds. He’ll likely be in line for similar production in Fort Wayne if he doesn’t end up making the Pacers roster out of camp.
