D.J. Augustin scored 18 points (5-11 FG, 4-10 3PT, 4-4 FT) with four rebounds, five assists, a steal, and two turnovers across 22 minutes during Sunday's 124-95 blowout loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
The veteran point guard drained four triples while handing out five assists in a blowout loss to end the Rockets' abysmal season. With rumors swirling about John Wall leaving Houston this offseason, Augustin could be brought back again for the 2021-22 season.
D.J. Augustin scored 21 points (6-10 FG, 4-6 3PT, 5-6 FT) with two rebounds, two assists, and two turnovers across 25 minutes during Monday's 140-129 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.
The veteran point guard filled in for John Wall (hamstring) and Kevin Porter Jr. (ankle) during Monday's loss, converting four triples and finishing with two rebounds and two assists to return decent value in lineups.

Augustin was impressive off the bench in this one, as it was easily his best showing as a Rocket. Despite the solid performance, he's not on the fantasy radar and probably never will be this season. Next up is Monday's game against the Grizzlies.
The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to terms with the Rockets that will send DJ Augustin, DJ Wilson, and a 2023 first rounder to the Rockets in exchange for PJ Tucker, Kurucs, and a 2022 first rounder.
The move comes at no surprise as the trade deadline was approaching rapidly and the Bucks continue to try and gain pace in a tight eastern conference. With Augustin now being shipped the Houston it will likely open up more minutes for back guard Bryn Forbes.
Milwaukee Bucks PG D.J. Augustin (personal) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Pelicans.
With Jrue Holiday listed out due to league health protocols and now Augustin being listed out, the Bucks will be thin at PG. The absence of the two primary guards will open up starting minutes for backup Bryn Forbes. We may also see increased run for Donte DiVincenzo.
