Even though the sample size 7 games into the regular season is small, Stone has mostly looked pretty good on the court and his stats are far superior to Buycks or Augustin.

Stone: 4 games, 28 minutes, 18.2 PER, 17.1 Assist%, 163 ORtg, 110 DRtg, 100 eFG%
(per 36 minutes) 12.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.3 turnovers

Buycks: 3 games, 28 minutes, 8.4 PER, 11.4 Assist%, 97 ORtg, 104 DRtg, 50 eFG%
(per 36 minutes) 10.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 2.6 turnovers

Augustin: 7 games, 71 minutes, -1.1 PER, 14.8 Assists%, 67 ORtg, 109 DRtg, 23.8 eFG%
(per 36 minutes) 8.1 points, 1.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 4.1 turnovers

Case for Julyan Stone


Augustin has been bad - he's looked bad, but -1.1 PER & more turnovers than assists bad... time for a change!

Small sample size, but Stone has been getting better with each opportunity - plus Stone & Ross have some chemistry going on
