Breakers confirm replacement point guard

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 9/11/2016

Breakers general manager Dillon Boucher has confirmed that David Stockton will replace injured point guard Ben Woodside

Stockton, who currently plays with Croatian Euroleague side KK Cedevita Zagreb, joins the Auckland-based Australian NBL side for the remainder of the season.

Boucher described Stockton as "a very polished player in all facets of the game, who shows great leadership".

He is the son of NBA Hall of Famer John Stockton, who holds the all-time NBA record for assists and shared a famous, lethal combination with Utah Jazz forward Karl Malone in the 1990s.

Woodside is expected to be out of action for about two months after suffering foot ligament damage last Friday against Melbourne United.

Stockton, 25, played three games for Sacramento Kings in the NBA, but has spent most of his career with NBA development league side Reno Bighorns.
