D.J. Augustin scored 18 points and added nine assists and two steals on Thursday.
Augustin steps right into the point guard role for this team as they shipped out Elfrid Payton to the Suns at the deadline. This is a big bump for Augustin’s value. He should realistically get a bump across the board at the cost of some turnovers and shooting percentage from the floor as he takes on more of the ball-handling duties. It wouldn’t be surprising to see his assists sit around six per game. He should definitely be on radars in all leagues.
