RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Augustin got lost on the Pacers' bench last season, averaging career-worst numbers across the board, but as the backup to the fragile Kyle Lowry he's got a better shot at seeing consistent minutes and regaining the form he flashed in 2010. Even if Lowry stays healthy, Augustin should help provide a three-point shooting element that the Raptors' second unit lacked last season.

2012-13

The Pacers needed a backup point guard and Augustin was their man for the job. His four years in Charlotte were unremarkable, but Augustin’s development was stunted by coach Larry Brown and a bad roster of talent. Getting out of that situation will help revive his career. He’s entering his age-25 season and is a high-IQ player with good court vision. Augustin maintains a career 2.75:1 assist-to-turnover ratio. Coming off the bench with the Pacers will be an adjustment and we’ll need to see how well the second unit comes together.

2011-12

Augustin isn’t anyone’s idea of a prototype point guard, least of all Larry Brown’s. He’s more of a classic “two guard in a point guard’s body.” But he won the starting job in training camp last season, and held it down well enough that no one expected the Bobcats – a team with needs at just about every position – to use a lottery pick on another point. But general manager Rich Cho threw everyone a curve by selecting Final Four hero Kemba Walker – another undersized scoring lead guard – with the ninth overall pick. It’s awfully hard to see how Charlotte could play the 6-0 Augustin with the 6-1 Walker and defend opposing twos, but that’s apparently the plan. The Bobcats have said they’ll rely more on zone defense to minimize the vulnerability of their very small backcourt. If that doesn’t work, don’t be surprised to find Augustin on the trading block.

2010-11

With Raymond Felton movin' on up to the East Side, the point guard spot in Charlotte will fall to either Augustin or newly-signed Shaun Livingston. Neither seems to be an ideal fit. Augustin is undersized at 6-0, 180, and his best NBA skill is his shooting – hardly the prototypical Larry Brown floor general. Livingston, on the other hand, has excellent size and court vision, but is still recovering from a grisly knee injury. There's no guarantee his body can stand up to playing starter's minutes. The suspicion is that Augustin ends up with the lion's share of the job in what may become a "shooting guard on offense, point guard on defense" arrangement that has Stephen Jackson initiating the offense. If so, Augustin could become a handy source of threes.

When the Bobcats drafted Augustin, the easy assumption was that Larry Brown planned to groom the ex-Longhorn to take Raymond Felton’s place as lead guard. Problem is, Augustin isn’t a “Larry Brown point guard,” either. Augustin’s got legitimate three-point range (43.9 percent from distance as a rookie) and the quickness and handle to penetrate and score in the paint, but he’s not what you’d call a floor leader (1.7 turnovers to 3.5 assists), and he’s on the small side (listed as 6-0, he’s closer to 5-10). Augustin actually played his best ball as a sub for shooting guard Raja Bell late last season – his best role going forward may be as a Ben Gordon/Nate Robinson style bench scorer, though he’s smaller than Gordon and not quite as quick as Robinson.

The Bobcats surprised a lot of people by using the ninth-overall pick on a point guard, just three years after using the fifth-overall pick on Raymond Felton. Apparently new Bobcats coach Larry Brown wanted another lead guard prospect; if Augustin plays well in the pre-season he has a decent chance to earn some minutes as a rookie. Augustin is a quick, athletic point guard with excellent passing skills and legit three-point range on his jumper. He's a good scorer who also finishes well in traffic and draws fouls, but at his size (about 5-10) he may not be big enough to do that in the NBA.
