Stockton will sign with Medi Bayreuth of the German BBL league, Sportando reports. After a pair of 10-day deals with the Jazz late last season, Stockton ultimately received a deal to remain with the club through the end of the year. However, he only got on the court for three games and was merely emergency depth. Stockton became a restricted free agent this offseason, but instead of trying to stick it out with the Jazz or find another team in the NBA, he'll head back overseas on what is presumably a more lucrative deal. Stockton is no stranger to playing overseas, as he spent the 2016-17 campaign playing in stints with New Zealand and Cedevita.
Stockton will sign a contract with the Jazz to remain in Utah for the rest of the season, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. Besides offering up nostalgia, the second coming of a Stockton family member in Utah has mostly been uneventful on the court. The Gonzaga standout has seen just nine total minutes since joining the Jazz in mid-March and is not expected to see consistent playing time moving forward, unless the team's playoff seeding becomes locked in before the regular season ends.
The Jazz plan to sign Stockton to a second 10-day contract Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. Stockton has been limited to one three-minute appearance during his first week and a half with the Jazz, but has apparently displayed enough potential in practices for the team to justify keeping him around. With Dante Exum now back in the fold after missing most of the season while recovering from shoulder surgery, it's difficult to see Stockton garnering minutes with the second unit anytime in the near future.
Stockton signed a 10-day contract with the Jazz on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The son of an NBA Hall of Famer, Stockton has spent the season in the G League with the Reno Bighorns, appearing in 29 games and averaging 16.3 points, 5.2 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game. The former Gonzaga standout will provide some depth at point guard after the Jazz lost Raul Neto to a broken wrist earlier in the week. However, given the fact that Dante Exum is back in the mix, Stockton's impact at the NBA level figures to be minimal.
Stockton managed 23 points (8-16 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three assists, three steals and one rebound during Friday's 114-115 loss at Austin. The son of the former great Utah Jazz guard has been a steady scorer for Reno this season and Friday's performance was no different. Currently, the 26-year-old from Gonzaga is averaging a superb 16.1 points, 5.2 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game during his fourth stint in the G League.
