When the Chicago Bulls lost Derrick Rose to another season-ending knee injury in late November, the team was in need of a player who could provide solid minutes at the backup point guard position.
And the front office addressed this need by signing D.J. Augustin.
On paper, this seemed like a questionable move, considering that Augustin averaged just 2.1 points per contest in 10 appearances for the Toronto Raptors.
He’s a good scorer; he just needs the opportunity. I think it would be a good look for our team because right now we’re trying to keep guys healthy.
Were the Bulls and Augustin a match made in heaven?
To answer this question, let’s take a look back at his 2013-14 season, including season stats, highlight/lowlight, best/worse performances and my final grade.
