It has come to a point in the offseason where it is time to reflect back on the Chicago Bulls players and some of their best performances from the past season. As of right now, we have already discussed Carlos Boozer, who was amnestied by the Bulls and is now a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Today, we will take a look at another player who is no longer with the Bulls—D.J. Augustin.
The Bulls acquired D.J. Augustin after Derrick Rose suffered another season-ending knee injury. This was considered a questionable move at the time because Augustin had been placed on waivers by the Toronto Raptors after just 10 appearances and his scoring average had decreased over the last three seasons.
However, Augustin resurrected his career with the Bulls and was often called a season saver by both Tom Thibodeau and his teammates. How well did Augustin play for the Bulls this season? Well, he was the team’s leading scorer with 14.9 points per contest while shooting a respectable 41 percent from distance. His five assists per contest were second only behind Joakim Noah and his 30.4 minutes per games were the highest since the 2010-11 season.
In spite of his valuable contributions to the team this season, the Bulls and Augustin parted ways this summer, and he has signed a two-year deal worth $6 million with the Detroit Pistons. Augustin gave Bulls fans a lot to cheer about last season. And for that reason, we will take a look back at some of his memorable performances from 2013-14.
Please note: The following list is composed of games in which Augustin scored at least 25 points while connecting on 45 percent of his shot attempts, including 40 percent from distance.
