Chicago Bulls 2013-14 Player Grades: D.J. Augustin

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.

But as Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago reports, Bulls forward Taj Gibson was in favor of the acquisition and had this to say about Augustin:

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.

    With the stats he had before coming to the Bulls, the coach took a big risk. What do you think the coach saw in Augustin?

    • James Tillman

      Appreciate the response. Well he did have a couple of good seasons with Charlotte, but his minutes decreased after that. I think the front office thought he would be a solid scoring option in the right system. Fortunately, that assessment was correct for the most part.
