D.J. Augustin would like to re-sign with the Denver Nuggets.
Augustin will be in demand as a backup point guard this summer after averaging 11.7 points and 4.7 assists off the bench with Denver. "I was in a tough situation in Oklahoma," Augustin said. "It wasn't working out. I did the right thing, my agent did the right thing, and talked to those guys and they were kind enough to trade me, trade me to a good situation. Everything worked out." We'll keep an eye on Augustin's free agency destination, but his fantasy value is limited to deeper leagues as he's unlikely to find a starting job. May 3 - 12:26 PM

D.J. Augustin continued to fade on Sunday with just two points, one rebound and one assist in 18 minutes of action.

Augustin made a pair of free throws but was 0-of-2 from the field, and his role has been pinched with Denver giving unlimited minutes to Emmanuel Mudiay (19 points, five assists, three 3-pointers). There are better free agents available on the waiver wire, especially since Denver has just one game left in their season.
Apr 10 - 7:34 PM

D.J. Augustin came off the bench for 15 points, two rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes on Tuesday.

This was DJA's best game in recent memory, meaning he's far from a must-own, must-start fantasy player right now.
Apr 6 - 12:35 AM

D.J. Augustin finally cooled off in Monday's loss to Dallas, scoring just four points with three assists, three boards and three turnovers in 16 minutes.

He simply didn't play well tonight, but his owners should give him a pass. He was averaging 15.8 points, 6.2 assists, 2.0 boards, 1.4 steals and 2.4 treys in his previous five games on 47.9 percent shooting, so he should be much better vs. the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Mar 29 - 12:06 AM

D.J. Augustin double-doubled off the bench during Sunday's loss to the Clippers, registering 18 points, 10 assists, three 3-pointers, two rebounds, two steals and two turnovers in 34 minutes.

Augustin has been fantastic in Denver, putting in averages of 13.4 points, 5.2 assists and 2.0 triples in 25.1 minutes off the bench. That’s been good enough for ninth-round value in 9-cat leagues, and eighth-round value in 8-cat leagues. The Nuggets play four games next week, so if you’re seeking a low-end point guard, DJA is worth a look.
Mar 27 - 6:31 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 20 points with three rebounds, eight assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Lakers on Friday.

How much are the Lakers going to pay him this summer? Kidding aside, Augustin torched them for a season-high 26 points in the last game and is playing great. He's worth owning in standard leagues while he's hot like this.
Mar 26 - 1:49 AM

Nuggets coach Michael Malone said that D.J. Augustin is his team's "security blanket."

"D.J.'s our security blanket," Malone said. "He's won games for us. Put the ball into his hands in the fourth quarter and he steps up, makes shots, hits free throws and always makes the right play." Augustin has been awesome since arriving in Denver and is averaging 14.0 points, 5.6 assists, 2.0 boards, 1.4 steals and 1.6 3-pointers in 27.2 minutes over his last five games. He's worth owning in standard leagues while he's hot.

D.J. Augustin was superb off the bench against the Hornets during a 101-93 win on Saturday, scoring 24 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

He played nine minutes next to Emmanuel Mudiay and carried his team to a big road win. If Kenneth Faried (back) does miss more action, Augustin is going to benefit because the Nuggets go small. He's actually had some nice consistency in his last five, averaging 16.6 points, 1.8 rebounds, 6.2 dimes, 1.4 steals and 1.8 treys. He's worth a look in standard leagues for owners needing a scoring point guard.
Mar 19 - 9:01 PM

D.J. Augustin scored a team-high 17 points vs. the Hawks on Thursday, shooting 7-of-12 from the field.

The first unit was getting torched by the Hawks, so coach Michael Malone turned to his second unit for most of the game. Augustin added seven assists, one board, one block and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes, and he's been making some noise off the bench for a while now. Malone isn't afraid to deploy him next to Emmanuel Mudiay, so Augustin is worth a look for any owner in need of a guard while he's playing this well. Mudiay scored 12 points with two boards and two assists in 23 minutes.
Mar 17 - 11:35 PM

D.J. Augustin played 33 minutes and hit just 2-of-9 shots, but still finished with 12 points, four rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss.

DJA is cooking while backing up Emmanuel Mudiay over the last few weeks and is averaging 11.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five. If you need a point guard in a deep league, he's probably available. Mudiay started and had 14 points, four assists and two 3-pointers tonight.
Mar 15 - 9:46 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 13 points with one rebound, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Heat on Monday.

While Emmanuel Mudiay is really playing well, Augustin is still getting some minutes at combo guard. He played 10 minutes next to Mudiay in this game and a total of 39 in his last five. In those games, he averaged 11.2 points, 2.4 boards, 5.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.4 treys on 39.1 percent from the field. He's more of a deep-league point guard right now.
Mar 14 - 10:26 PM

D.J. Augustin sparked a comeback win over the Wizards on Saturday with 17 points, 10 assists, two boards, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

He played down the stretch in this one and coach Michael Malone couldn't take him off the floor. Augustin has had some nice moments in Denver and has even been logging minutes next to Emmanuel Mudiay, so he's on the radar in deeper leagues for owners in need of 3-pointers and assists.
Mar 13 - 12:42 AM

D.J. Augustin would be open to returning to the Denver Nuggets as a free agent.

Augustin will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2015-16 season, but said he'd welcome a return to the Nuggets. "I would love to be here," Augustin said. "It's a great city, great fans. I love the coaching staff and organization. Everything is great. So, I would love to find a home here." Augustin has played well for the Nuggets since being acquired at the trade deadline, but his fantasy value is mostly limited to deeper fantasy leagues barring injury to Emmanuel Mudiay.

D.J. Augustin lit up the Mavs during Sunday's overtime period, finishing a home victory with 12 points (3-of-10 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), four assists and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

Augustin scored eight points in OT, including a pair of free throws with 0.9 seconds remaining to give his team the lead. He's in a contract year at age 28 and he must be thrilled to have found a substantial role in Denver, where he's served as Emmanuel Mudiay's backup -- the two have also shared the court for extended stretches. Augustin was shooting lights-out in his previous four games, a level of efficiency which looks unsustainable, but he's in the discussion as a low-end PG in 12-team leagues.
Mar 6 - 8:13 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting Friday, to go with three rebounds, two assists and three more 3-pointers in 20 minutes off the bench.

Augustin has been a nice fit in Denver, and since joining the team he has produced averages of 12.9 points, 3.5 assists, 2.0 3-pointers and 0.8 steals per game on 48.5 percent shooting. That's been good enough for late-round value in standard leagues, so DJA is worth a look for those seeking a low-end point guard and 3-point specialist.
