augustin doesn't seem athletic enough to survive as a nba pg. he cannot finish inside, isn't strong enough to play any kind of post game and is basically just a weak defender and a streaky 3pt shooter. doesn't pass well either. nba pgs are too versatile and many teams play simply guards at the pg spot especially when subs are in who exploit augustin for the poor defender he is.

really bad pick. honestly don't see augustin having a long nba career.

also i don't know why nba teams continue to draft players who obviously lack strength and athleticism (morrisson comes to mind as an exremely slow weak player, also sean may was overweight and slow. felton on the other hand may not be as quick but is a strong pg). don't get me wrong, augustin is a quick guard but that's simply not enough at this level of basketball. brown and henderson seem to be the best draft we've ever had and both guys have good size and athleticism while neither are extremely weak. Brown isn't as strong as most pfs, but he's not frail.

you can't teach athleticism

If this trade is with the Knicks they'd need to get Nate Robinson or Gallinari. Doubt the Knicks would give up David Lee.

I have not liked what I have seen from D.J. this season. I agree with Sylvian, I don't think he'll last long in the league.

If we got Nate, Lee, or even Jordan Hill....I'd pull the trigger.

Nate gets paid alot of $$$, but Id love to see him as a Bobcat. I think our fans would love to see an undersized guard like him making plays. If we could get him for Augustin Id be all for it.

Yes, please bring in another undersized point guard. I'd take Duhon over Nate. At least we know Duhon is smart enough not to take last second three's on his own basket. He is also starting to gain some confidence. Another thing, Brown sucks when it comes to draft picks.

Expect Augustin to get some playing time tonight against the Knicks he preforms well we maybe able to pick up an extra player or a better player than what was originally offered.

WHY THE HELL DIDNT THEY TAKE LOPEZ?????

If Lopez becomes a dominate C, which he could, this could end up as bad as the Morrison pick.
