After doing some research. I like this signing. A young vet that has started and backed up in the league. His also been successful in both roles as while. In his rookie year he came off the bench in 26.4 mins a game and averaged 11.4 Pts 3.5 Ast on 43.0 FG% and 43.9 3FG%. The next year his mins dropped to 18.4. About people doubting his defense. His showed that his able to head man a good defense. His played a two pretty good defensive teams so far. In 09-10 with the Cats. When the they had Wallace and Jackson on the wings. That team was top10 in defense that year. Once more last year with the Pacers.
With all the excitement of Buycks we forget what kind of coach Casey is. Casey is defensive minded and puts an extremely premium on experience. So far Buycks haven't shown us any of that. So I do believe that Augustin will start the season with that primary backup role.
