Description: The Pistons have signed veteran point guard D.J. Augustin.
Insight: He signed for two years and $6 million, according to NBA reporter David Aldridge. Augustin averaged 14.9 points, 5.0 assists, and 2.2 threes over 61 games with the Bulls last season after the Raptors got rid of him, but he won't see 30.4 minutes per game as Brandon Jennings' backup. There's going to be a battle for minutes in the Pistons backcourt, as the team added Augustin and Caron Butler to Jennings, Will Bynum, Peyton Siva, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Singler and Jodie Meeks on Sunday.
4/14/2014 7:43:00 PM

4/14/2014 6:20:00 PM

3/31/2014 9:16:00 AM
Description: Bulls point guard D.J. Augustin blew up for 33 points Sunday in a win against Boston.
Insight: That's a season-high for the 26-year-old. Augustin started the year in Toronto but has been a completely different player since joining Chicago in mid-December. In 53 games filling in for Derrick Rose, Augustin has produced 14.5 ppg and 5.0 apg.
3/2/2014 6:54:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard D.J. Augustin scored 23 points with four 3-pointers in 26 minutes Sunday against the Knicks.
Insight: Augustin put up just 6.5 ppg on 18.9 percent shooting his previous four games, but he has averaged 31 minutes, 14.1 points, 5.4 assists, 2.2 threes, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals his last 37 games.
Hot1/25/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard D.J. Augustin has averaged 22.3 ppg over his last four games.
Insight: Augustin had 28 points and six threes Saturday at Charlotte and has shockingly been a very good fantasy option since joining the Bulls. He's unlikely to give up the starting job when Kirk Hinrich returns from a hamstring injury.
Hot1/20/2014 10:45:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard D.J. Augustin led the Bulls with 27 points on 10-of-16 shooting over 37 minutes Monday against the Lakers. Kirk Hinrich also suffered a right hamstring strain during the game, so we could see Augustin get even more playing time.
Insight: Seeing a productive Augustin seemed impossible after he shot 35 percent for the Pacers last year and 29.2 percent with Toronto earlier this season, but the guard has come up with 13.4 ppg, 6.4 apg, 1.4 spg and 2.1 3pg in his last 18 contests. That includes averages of 18 points, 7.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.7 threes per game over his last six games.
Hot1/18/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: Bulls guard D.J. Augustin tweaked his ankle in the fourth quarter of Friday night's game with Washington, but it doesn't appear to be serious.
Insight: Augustin has posted double-digit points in three of the past four games and is averaging a season's best 12.5 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 6.4 apg in January
Hot1/15/2014 10:32:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard D.J. Augustin provided 19 points, nine assists and three treys off the bench Wednesday.
Insight: After terrible stints with the Pacers and Raptors, Augustin has reestablished himself in Chicago by recording 11.9 points, 6.7 assists, 1.7 threes and 1.3 steals per game in his last 15 games.
Hot1/12/2014 9:17:00 AM
Description: Tony Snell started, but Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler's absence Saturday night was most beneficial to D.J. Augustin, who played 35 minutes and had 20 points and 12 assists against the Bobcats.
Insight: After terrible stints with the Pacers and Raptors, Augustin has been successful during his stay with the Bulls. In his last 13 games, he has averaged 31 minutes, 11.8 points, 6.5 assists, 2.1 rebounds, 1.7 threes and 1.4 steals.
Hot12/21/2013 10:47:00 PM
Description: Bulls point guard D.J. Augustin had 18 points, 10 assists, two steals and four threes in 46 minutes Saturday against the Cavaliers.
Insight: Augustin was awful as a backup with the Pacers last season and lasted just 10 games with Toronto before being waived this year. However, with Derrick Rose and Kirk Hinrich on the shelf, Augustin has received big minutes over the last four games and has put up 13.8 ppg. 8.0 apg, 1.5 spg and 2.8 3pg in that span.

Insight: The Raptors waived Augustin a few days ago to make room for Greivis Vasquez. He'll compete with Marquis Teague for the backup job behind starter Kirk Hinrich.
7/17/2013 6:49:00 PM
Description: D.J. Augustin inked a one-year, $1.26 million deal with Toronto on Wednesday. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo
Insight: Augustin is slated to backup Kyle Lowry at point guard. His fantasy stock is at an all-time low after an horrendous 2012-13 campaign (career-low 4.7 ppg on 35 percent shooting) and we're not expecting Augustin to be much better in 2013-14.
1/12/2013 10:14:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard D.J. Augustin saw extended minutes as a two-guard Saturday with Paul George out of the lineup. Augustin played 28 minutes and scored 18 points with four threes and four assists.
Insight: Augustin played alongside George Hill with Lance Stephenson getting time at the three. Domonic McGuire started in place of George but only played 6:31. Despite Saturday's effort, Augustin isn't worth owning unless Hill goes down for an extended period of time.
7/12/2012 6:40:00 PM
Description: Free agent point guard D.J. Augustin has found a new home. Augustin and the Pacers agreed to a one-year contract on Thursday.
Insight: Just when it looked like George Hill (9.6 ppg) had it made in the shade after Indiana traded Darren Collison (10.4 ppg, 4.8 apg) to Dallas, now Hill will again have to compete for the starting point guard job. On the opposite end of the spectrum, having Augustin (11.1 ppg, 6.4 apg) in Indiana should boost Kemba Walker's (12.2 ppg, 4.4 apg) fantasy standing next season in Charlotte.
4/23/2012 6:16:00 PM
Description: D.J. Augustin, out since April 15th with a knee ailment, will start Monday night against Washington.
Insight: The Kemba Walker/D.J. Augustin point guard shuffle continues, this time see-sawing back in Augustin's favor. Walker's fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much though. Even if Walker doesn't start, you can still expect him to see the court for 25-30 minutes, and that's plenty of time for him to be productive in fantasy.
4/16/2012 6:49:00 PM
Description: D.J. Augustin's knee is acting up again. He will not play Monday against New Orleans.
Insight: With Charlotte about a million games out of a playoff spot, there's no reason for Augustin to keep trying to come back from this bothersome knee injury. It's safe to say that Kemba Walker (12.3 ppg) will be the more valuable Bobcats point guard the rest of this season.
