The Kings waived David Stockton on Thursday, reducing their roster to 15 players as they prepare for the opening game of the season Wednesday.

Stockton, a 5-foot-11, 165-pound guard, had four points, five rebounds and four assists in 16 minutes in three preseason games for the Kings.

Last season, the Kings signed Stockton to a 10-day contract on Feb. 20. On April 20, they signed him to a contract through the 2015-16 season.

Stockton, the son of Hall of Famer John Stockton, played in three games for the Kings last season, averaging 11 minutes, 2.7 points and 3 assists. He played collegiately at Gonzaga, like his father.
