NBA Role: scoring point guard Salty DOG

Whether it’s a marquee role or mop-up minutes, DJ Augustin usually brings a loaded set of tools to the table; DJ’s an undersized PG (6’0 is generous!) but is a bold lane-driver – reliable float game, can find open teammates after penetrating; thrives outta the PnR – good command, makes sound reads and shoots the three ball well enough to keep defenders honest; clutch shot-maker – when DJ’s mean mug makes an appearance, you know you’re in for an “unexpected” 15-20 point night; much like other sub-6’3 points, DJ struggles to defend his position and will take some really difficult shots; competing w/ Elfrid Payton CJ Watson for min.; always has the perfect taper (does he cut it himself or does DJ have a 24/7, on-demand barber?)
