Augustin scored a solid 12 points (3-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT) with three rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes in his first game for the Thunder on Saturday, following Thursday's trade.Augustin played some next to Russell Westbrook, so his fantasy value isn't completely dead, but the numbers he was putting up in Detroit aren't realistic now. He can be dropped in most standard leagues, but if he keeps playing minutes in the mid-20s, he'll be just on the borderline of usefulness for the remainder of the season.

Augustin has been filling in nicely for Brandon Jennings and hopefully if you lost the guard for the season you were able to pick him up. He leaves something to be desired with his steal totals, but he scores and dishes assists at a rate that make him serviceable.

It's the third time in the last five games that Augustin has struck for 25 or more points, as he continues to thrive in Brandon Jennings' absence. Barring a major roster shakeup at the trade deadline, expect Augustin to be a big part of the Pistons' offense for the rest of the season.

If he's still available in your league add him immediately, as the promise of what he can do is simply to great to ignore.
