D. J. Augustin PG DET 1 Month

Augustin scored 11 points (4-8 FG; 1-3 3Pt) with five rebounds and ten assists in 30 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Magic.

With the Pistons opening up an 18-point lead in the third quarter, Augustin saw big minutes off the bench alongside a red-hot Jodie Meeks. Augustin hasn't topped 24 minutes in a game since December 9 - and didn't even score in Sunday's win in Cleveland - so Tuesday's double-double may be somewhat of a mirage. Still, Augustin is worth keeping an eye on in case coach Stan Van Gundy decides to shake things up again in the wake of Josh Smith's release.

Augustin moved back to the bench after Brandon Jennings returned to the starting lineup on Sunday. He ended the game with five points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one assist, and three turnovers in 13 minutes.

With Jennings back, Augustin loses the short-term value he held with an increase in minutes. While he's had notable performances as the backup, they're far from frequent enough to make him worth rostering in all, but the deepest of leagues.

Augustin made a spot start at point guard Tuesday with Brandon Jennings (thumb) sitting out the game. Augustin finished with 11 points (4-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in 37 minutes.

Augustin seems like the odds-on favorite to start again Wednesday unless Jennings is cleared to play with his sprained left thumb. There was a position battle brewing at the start of the season that dissipated as Jennings defined himself, but with the Pistons dropping their last five games and sitting on a record of 3-11, it'd be more shocking to see the Pistons stay the course than it would be to see them shake things up. If any word comes down from coach Stan Van Gundy that the team is going to make a change at point guard, Augustin would be worth adding in most standard leagues. It hasn't gotten there yet, but make sure Augustin is on your watch lists.

Augustin scored 16 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3P, 6-9 FT) with two assists in 21 minutes off the bench Monday.

He had a good game against his former club, but the Bulls had the last laugh in a 102-91 win. Augustin will continue to supply decent numbers off the Pistons' bench, but he's not going to unseat Brandon Jennings in the starting lineup any time soon.

Augustin scored 20 points (6-18 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT) with six assists in 33 minutes in the loss to the Timberwolves on Thursday.

For the second straight game, Augustin played more minutes than Brandon Jennings, who started the game. Augustin did not shoot efficiently, but he may be a short term add while Jennings struggles with a slight Achilles injury.

Augustin played more minutes than Brandon Jennings, who started the game. Augustin finished the game against the Nuggets with 15 points (5-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and six rebounds.

The Pistons' point guard battle will be one to watch going forward. Jennings and Augustin both had three turnovers in the season opener, but Augustin was much more effective offensively and had three more rebounds than Jennings.

Augustin was praised by Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy as being the team's best point guard at "getting guys in the right places," the Detroit Free Press reports.

Van Gundy is extremely high on Augustin, which has led to some speculation that the Pistons have a legitimate position battle between incumbent starting point guard Brandon Jennings and Augustin. Before jumping to conclusions, it should also be noted that Van Gundy praised Jennings for attacking the rim and making plays in the paint, which were weaknesses in the past. Augustin's value would see a huge spike if he were able to surprise and nab the starting point guard job, but Jennings should still be considered the heavy favorite at this point.

Free agent D.J. Augustin will sign with the Pistons on a two-year deal worth $6 million, according to TNT's David Aldridge.

The free agent market for PGs is thinning out quickly, as guys like Kirk Hinrich, Mario Chalmers, Brian Roberts and Augustin all agreed to terms on Sunday. Detroit already has Will Bynum and Peyton Siva on their roster behind starter Brandon Jennings, and they're stocked with SGs, so it's hard to envision Augustin recapturing the career-high 14.9 points per game he averaged with Chicago last season. Stan Van Gundy came into free agency with a priority on shooting, particularly from the beyond the arc, and he's splurged on deals for Jodie Meeks, Cartier Martin and Augustin.

The Hornets have reportedly expressed interest in free agent PG D.J. Augustin.

The Mavericks are also still interested in Augustin despite reaching an agreement with Devin Harris, as they seem reasonably leery of relying too heavily on Raymond Felton at PG. Augustin thrived with Chicago last season, averaging 14.9 points and 5.0 assists, but he'll likely fill a backup role no matter where he signs and those numbers should be viewed as his ceiling.

The Dallas Mavericks have shown interest in unrestricted free agent D.J. Augustin.

The Mavericks are still interested in re-signing Devin Harris, but are also looking at Augustin as a way to replace the recently traded Jose Calderon. Augustin averaged 14.9 points and 5.0 assists in 61 games with the Bulls last season and shot 41.1 percent from downtown, so he would provide the Mavs with a solid option to backup the oft-injured Raymond Felton.
