Augustin started 81 games for the Orlando Magic in 2018-2019. He averaged 11.7 points per contest. Augustin shot a career-high 47 percent from the field. He also collected 2.5 rebounds and 5.3 assists per tilt. Augustin led the Magic in assists as well. He had four double-doubles during the regular season. He accumulated a season-best 13 dimes at Boston on Apr. 7. He recorded a season-high 27 points against Phoenix on Dec. 26. Augustin hit over 42 percent of his shots from long distance. He had four games with four three-pointers made. Augustin led the Magic to the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons. He scored a game-high 25 points in Orlando's Game 1 victory over the Toronto Raptors in the first round.2017
Augustin took a leap forward in his age-30 season, his second with the Magic. He earned a few starts early in the season with Elfrid Payton sidelined due to a hamstring injury, and took advantage of the opportunity. In just the third game of the season, Augustin posted a double-double with 12 points and 10 assists in a lopsided win over the Cavaliers. He had some momentum with 8.2 points and 5.7 assists through six chances as a starter, but suffered a hamstring injury on Nov. 1 that cost him seven games. By the time he returned, Payton was healthy and Augustin was back to a backup role. He remained a reserve until Feb. 8, when Payton was shipped to the Suns in exchange for a draft pick, leaving the point guard job wide open. Augustin ended up starting the final 29 games of the season, averaging 12.8 points and 5.0 assists over that span. That stretch included a season-high 32 points (9-15 FG) in a March 14 victory over Milwaukee. Augustin also recorded his second double-double of the year on March 24, racking up 15 points and 10 assists. It was nearly his first career triple-double, as he had nine boards in that game as well. Augustin finished the year with a 10.2 ppg scoring average, representing his best mark since 2013-14.2016
Again a free agent, Augustin ended up signing a four-year deal with the Magic in early July. He made his Orlando debut in the season opener Oct. 26, registering seven points across 17 minutes off the bench. Augustin remained a reserve player for the first 16 games but made his first start with the Magic on Nov. 27 in favor of Elfrid Payton. He had 11 points and five assists in that matchup and stayed in the starting lineup through Jan. 2 (20 games). Augustin came off the bench behind Payton the rest of the way, but it was not without a few noteworthy performances. He had a season-high 19 points Oct. 6 against Houston, knocking down four three-pointers in the contest. He posted a season-high assist total of eight twice in the month of January, doing so against the Lakers and Bucks. At the end of the season, Augustin's scoring average of 7.9 ppg was up a hair from the previous year, but his assist total (2.7) was down slightly. He did make 20 starts, however, which was his most in a single season since 2011-12. Augustin and the Magic ultimately missed the postseason with a 29-53 record.2015
Still under contract with the Thunder, Augustin entered the 2015-16 season slated to serve as the primary backup to Russell Westbrook. While Westbrook rightfully demanded a heavy minutes workload, Augustin still managed averages of 4.6 points and 2.0 assists through the season's first 30 games. By the end of December, however, Augustin's playing time started taking a hit in favor of rookie Cameron Payne. From Dec. 29 to Feb. 11, Augustin appeared in just three games, scoring a combined five points. He eventually got the change of scenery he needed, as Augustin was dealt to the Nuggets on Feb. 18. He made his Denver debut the very next night, tallying eight points and six assists off the bench. While Augustin remained a reserve player with the Nuggets, his production ramped up significantly. Through the final 28 games, Augustin averaged 11.6 points and 4.7 assists. That was highlighted by a season-high 26-point performance in a win over the Lakers on March 2. It didn't result in a playoff berth with Denver posting a 33-49 record on the season, but Augustin still showed potential suitors that he had plenty left in the tank.2014
Despite a resurgence during his time with Chicago in 2013-14, Augustin switched teams, signing a one-year deal with the Pistons on July 13. He opened the year as the backup to Brandon Jennings, making his Detroit debut Oct. 29 agains the Nuggets. In that contest, Augustin recorded 15 points, six rebounds and three assists. He followed that up with a 20-point effort the next game against the Timberwolves. Augustin ended up appearing in 54 games (13 starts) with the Pistons, averaging 10.6 ppg over that span. He was dealt to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Feb. 19 and debuted with 12 points Feb. 21 against Charlotte. His best scoring game with the Thunder came March 29 against Phoenix, when he had 19 points in a winning effort. Augustin appeared in 28 games (one start) with the Thunder to finish the season, averaging 7.3 points and 3.1 assists across 24.2 minutes. Despite Oklahoma City initially having more point guard depth, Augustin was able to slightly increase his playing time with his new team. The Thunder just missed the playoffs, however, finishing with a record of 45-37.2013
Augustin signed a one-year deal with the Raptors over the 2012 offseason, and was poised to compete for backup point guard duties. He ultimately secured that role backing up Kyle Lowry, and recorded five points and two assists in his Raptors debut on opening night, Oct. 30. But Augustin fell out of Toronto's rotation and was released on Dec. 9. It didn't take him long to catch on elsewhere, however, as Augustin proceeded to clear waivers and sign with the Bulls on Dec. 11. He registered one assist, one rebound and one steal during his Dec. 13 debut with Chicago. The guard had a strong finish to December, registering 12.7 points and 7.0 assists over a seven-game stretch. Augustin started three games over that span while Kirk Hinrich dealt with a back injury. Augustin went on to appear in 61 games (nine starts) for the Bulls and averaged 14.9 points and 5.0 assists per contest. On Mar. 30, he set a new career high of 33 points in a victory over Boston. Augustin remained a factor in the postseason, when he came off the bench for all five games of Chicago's opening-round games versus Washington. That included a 25-point, seven-assist effort in Game 2.2012
Over the summer of 2012, Augustin signed with the Pacers as an unrestricted free agent. Augustin entered the year slated to back up George Hill. He made his Pacers debut on opening night, Oct. 31, and recorded five points and a pair of assists across 15 minutes off the bench. From New Year's Eve to Jan. 4, Augustin started in three straight games and averaged 13.7 points and 5.3 assists per game during that span. On Jan. 4 he scored a season-high 18 points, a feat he replicated eight nights later at home in a win over his former Bobcats squad. Augustine ended up reaching double figures 10 times on the year. The Pacers made it all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals , but lost in seven games to the Heat. Through 19 playoff games (one start), Augustin averaged 5.2 points, 0.7 assists and 1.0 three-pointer per postseason contest.2011
Pressure started to mount on Augustin in a lockout-shortened 2011-12 season, as the Bobcats selected another point guard (Kemba Walker) ninth overall in the 2011 NBA draft. The two managed to coexist, however, frequently sharing the starting backcourt. In fact, Augustin started 46 of the 48 games in which he played. He got off to a hot start, averaging 16.1 points and 6.7 assists through the season's first 10 games. On Jan. 3, Augustin posted a season-high 26 points, nine assists and four rebounds in a loss at Cleveland. At New Jersey, he suffered a broken toe Jan. 22, which forced an 11-game absence. Augustin also dealt with knee tendinitis, which cost him seven games in April. He still averaged 11.1 points and a career-best 6.4 assists per game when it was all said and done.2010
Augustin silenced doubters about his ability to retain full-time point-guard duties in 2010-11, his third NBA season. Augustin turned heads by putting up an efficient 26 points (9-13 FG) in the third game of the year. That set the stage for a season filled with highlight performances. He hadn't recorded a double-double since his rookie season, but did it on back-to-back nights on Nov. 12 and 13 against the Wizards and Jazz, respectively. Augustin also set a new career-best scoring total with 31 points on Jan. 20 against the Sixers. For the season, Augustin posted new career bests in scoring (14.4 ppg), assists (6.1 apg) and rebounding (2.7 rpg).2009
With a productive rookie season under his belt, Augustin entered 2009-10 season once again slated as the backup point guard to Raymond Felton. He was remained relatively injury-free and appeared in 80 games (two starts). Over 18.4 minutes per game, the guard averaged 6.4 points, 2.4 assists and 0.9 three-pointers per contest. On Jan. 23, he delivered a season-high 22 points versus the Magic. Augustin's best distributing effort came Apr. 10 against the Pistons, when he started and dished out nine dimes. The Hornets finished at 44-38 and lost to the Magic in the first round of the playoffs, which allowed Augustin to experienced his first post-season. He played in all four playoff games for Charlotte, with his best effort coming in Game 2 with six points, three assists and one rebound.2008
Augustin was selected ninth overall by the Bobcats in the 2008 NBA Draft. The University of Texas product made his NBA debut Oct. 30 against the Cavaliers, collecting 12 points and two assists across 25 minutes off the bench. He went on to record a number of noteworthy performances over the course of his 72 games (12 starts). Despite serving largely in a reserve role, Augustin averaged 11.8 points and 3.5 assists per game. His offensive productivity was largely powered by remarkable three-point shooting, as Augustin made 43.9 percent of his shots from beyond the arc -- the ninth-best mark in the NBA. He also shot 89.3 percent from the free-throw line. Augustin scored 20-plus points on 10 occasions. On Nov. 21, he set his season high with seven threes on 11 attempts en route to 26 points against Atlanta. Three days later, Nov. 24, he posted his first NBA double-double with 25 points and 11 assists. But Augustin's biggest offensive outburst came Dec. 16, when he dropped 29 points and seven assists on the Bulls.
