Kings to retire former forward Peja Stojakovic's jersey on Dec. 16
Stojakovic was a three-time All Star for the Kings, who he played for from 1998 to 2006. He averaged 18.3 points and 5.0 rebounds during his time in Sacramento.
The shooting specialist's 1,070 three-pointers are a team record, and he is sixth in franchise history in points with 9,498. For his career, Stojakovic made 1,760 three-pointers, the ninth-most in NBA history.
Stojakovic was traded to the Indiana Pacers for Metta World Peace in 2006. He also played for the New Orleans Hornets, Toronto Raptors and Dallas Mavericks, winning a championship with the Mavericks in 2011 before retiring.
The Kings made the playoffs five times during Stojakovic's time with the team, including a trip to the Western Conference Finals in 2002. The Kings have made the playoffs just once since Stojakovic was traded.
