David Stockton’s professional basketball career will continue in Germany.

The former Gonzaga Bulldogs point guard has signed with Medi Bayreuth, the team announced.

“We have got a classical point guard,” coach Raoul Korner said on the team’s Website. “He has the abilities to make his teammates better, but can also score. He has a high basketball IQ and fighting mentality. He is a huge enrichment with his abilities.”

Stockton finished last season with the Utah Jazz, the second NBA stint for the son of Hall of Famer John Stockton. He scored 12 points in 14 minutes in five games. Stockton also saw time in three games with Sacramento during the 2014-15 season.

Stockton played for the U.S. in FIBA World Cup qualifying rounds earlier this year.

The 5-foot-11 Gonzaga Prep product played four years with the Reno Bighorns in the NBA G League and was an all-star selection last season. Stockton’s overseas experience includes spending part of the 2016-17 season with Cedevita in Croatia and the New Zealand Breakers.

Stockton played in 138 career games with the Zags, averaging 4.8 points and 3.1 assists. He made 36 starts and averaged 7.4 points and 4.2 assists as a senior in 2014.

Michael Stockton, David’s older brother, has played for German teams Karlsruhe, Ludwigsburg and Goettingen. Michael, a graduate of Westminster College in Salt Lake City, averaged 14.9 points and 6.1 assists last season with Goettingen.

Several former Zags play in Germany, including Elias Harris (Brose Baskets), Drew Barham (Hamburg Towers) and Kyle Dranginis (Romerstrom Gladiators Trier).
