Denver Nuggets Rumors
Augustin was a little turnover-happy at times, coughing up the ball 30 percent of the time in pick-and-roll and transition plays. His two most common turnovers were the bad-pass turnover and the lost ball turnover. His unfamiliarity with his new teammates contributed to many of the miscues, especially early on when Augustin didn’t know the plays. Augustin is hoping to stay with the Nuggets. “Everybody in the NBA can play so as long as you can get the opportunity and minutes,” Augustin said.
In an interview with Sports 1140 KHTK, a CBS Sacramento radio station, Cousins was asked what the Kings’ result would have been this year if Michael Malone weren’t ever fired in the early portion of the 2014-15 season. “We would have been a playoff team,” Cousins said without hesitation. “The thing about that is, it was one goal in my mind at the end of the day: winning games. And the way that team was structured, the way the foundation was set for that team, that collective group, I believe it was done the right way. Of course, it didn’t show on paper, but we were taking the right steps. It’s never gonna happen overnight.”
Forgive D.J. Augustin if he doesn’t exactly jump for joy each time he hears a team say its interested in retaining his services. He’s been there before. Many times before. “This is my fourth summer being a free agent,” Augustin told The Post. “You never know what can happen. I’ve been promised things in the past, and it didn’t come true. I’ve had my hopes up in the past and it things didn’t happen.”
“It’s just all about putting things in God’s hands and my agent’s hands and I’m going to just relax,” Augustin said. “My wife is having our third child. So I’m going to just see what happens. Anything can happen. I love it here, and hopefully things work out.”
