The Los Angeles Lakers have signed point guard David Stockton, the son of Hall of Famer John Stockton, the team announced Friday. The Lakers already had a full roster, both in terms of actual NBA roster spots and training camp slots. In order to make room for him, the Lakers waived forward Jordan Caroline. That gives Stockton a chance to prove himself at training camp, In all likelihood, though, he will not make the NBA roster, which was filled with the signing of Dwight Howard.

Stockton will instead likely play for the G League's South Bay Lakers, who telegraphed this move last month by trading two first-round picks for the returning player rights to Stockton, who spent last season playing in Germany for Medi Bayreuth, and Reggie Hearn. If he does indeed play for South Bay, he will be joining several others who are related to bigger-name players. Kostas Antetokounmpo, brother of MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, signed a two-way contract with Los Angeles this offseason, and the South Bay Lakers are coached by Coby Karl, son of long-time NBA coach George Karl.

Here are Stockton's stats from the G League (averaged 16 and 5 assists in 28 minutes, 40% from deep):

Strange signing, maybe because of his 3pt%

So is John Stocktons son as good as his father used to be? If he is that good and is a good three point shooter, replace Caruso with Stockton.
