But that doesn’t change the fact that Van Gundy has turned to backup point guard D.J. Augustin for a majority of minutes in the first two games of the 0-2 start. And it’s obvious that Van Gundy’s decision-making process is bothering Jennings. When told that Van Gundy said that Augustin has been the better point guard the first two games, Jennings quietly said: “Then he should start and I’ll be the backup, if that’s the case.” And with that Jennings added: “That’s all I’ve got.”
New Detroit Pistons point guard D.J. Augustin held his annual youth basketball camp in Louisiana on Tuesday, and he spoke with the New Orleans Advocate about his NBA situation. Some highlights: “I really wanted to be back in Chicago, and they really wanted me back. But it didn’t work out, businesswise, and I had to move on.” “Detroit wanted me. I think it will be a good opportunity for me, and I think we’re going to do well.”
“I’m hoping everything works out and I’m back here,” Augustin told RealGM. “I’m excited. No matter what happened recently, we still have a lot to build on. People didn’t expect us to be where we were, so going into next season is exciting. It was big coming here and finding a home on a team full of great players. It’s like a family, and just having a chance to play and get an opportunity was big for me.”
