Former Gonzaga Bulldogs guard David Stockton signed Tuesday with the Sacramento Kings.

Stockton played in three games for the Kings during the 2014-15 season. He has had three stints with the Reno Bighorns, Sacramento’s G-League affiliate. He played last year for Cedevita Zagreb in Croatia and with the New Zealand Breakers.

Stockton, son of Naismith Memorial Hall of Famer John Stockton, holds the Bighorns’ single-game record with 22 assists against the Texas Legends in his rookie season in 2014.

The Kings on Tuesday waived veteran guard Marcus Williams, who played in two preseason games. They also signed Reggie Hearn, who has spent the last three seasons with the Bighorns.

Sacramento lists 20 players on its training camp roster.

Stockton and Hearn are expected to see playing time in Friday’s preseason finale against Golden State in Oakland. The Kings will probably rest several key players before the season opener against Houston on Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Stockton played in 138 games at Gonzaga from 2011-14. He started 36 games as a senior, averaging 7.4 points, 4.2 assists and 1.5 steals. He averaged nearly 20 minutes per game in his GU career.
