He has grasped Thibs system and looks GREAT!  We need to hopefully resign him to back up Derrick.  Forget about drafting a PG for that.  We have our man!!

Don't get ahead of yourself.  This is most likely an outlier in his career.  His PER, TS%, win shares, etc are much, much higher than he has shown in the past.  He plays well as a starter, and then stinks it up as a player off the bench.  He has already worn out hiw welcome on three different teams as a back-up.

I seriously doubt he takes a backup role after the way he has blown up since getting this huge PT, he will probably cash in with another team and be their starter.

I'm surprised how he's played so far. Thought he was gonna be a legit weapon for the Pacers back then but he failed miserably.

And hasn't Thibs tried out some 2-PG line-ups in the past? Wouldn't be surprised to see a starting DRose-DJ backcourt as well

Though I wonder how much money he would want, so it depends.

I totally agree and DJ takes a large part of the blame for our draft position. But he doesn't fit as a back-up, and has been on a few teams. I think he will be Nate Robinson Part two, and go get some team to drop him a long term deal. And for him that maybe two years.

After he fell off after leaving Charlotte, teams may be scared to go even two years.

This is all Thib's work.

He'll take random off-guards, and have them fill in successfully until Rose is back.

Nothing new.

I'm just more worried about Rose's health.

I wonder if Augustin will try to cash in big somewhere next year or he likes his success with Chicago?

No one is going to offer DJ Augustin big money.  If he is smart he would take part of NY's MMLE money next season.

Yeah, no matter what he has or hasn't done lately that ship sailed when the damage was done in his short time in Indy.

DJ has only started 9 games for the Bulls, so don't say he stinks it up off the bench. Sure, he's still getting 30 mpg of the bench, but he's still not a "starter." Technicalities my friends, technicalities.

And FWIW, his numbers in his career per36:
Starter: 14.9 points, 6.7 assists, 2.7 rebounds, 2.2 turnovers, .8 steals
Reserve: 14.0 points, 5 assists, 2.5 rebounds, 2.1 turnovers, .95 steals

And his USG% as a starter is 20.9 compared to 19.5 as a reserve... And his TS% is slightly higher as a reserve at .545 compared to .540 as a starter. I'd say he's fully capable of being a solid backup in the right system...

Yeah, no matter what he has or hasn't done lately that ship sailed when the damage was done in his short time in Indy.
I think it can easily be argued that he was a poor fit for what they were looking for. They pretty much just used him as a spot-up 3pt shooter, which is clearly not his game. He only attempted 3.9 shots per game and 2.5 of them were 3's. 77% of his jumpers were assisted... The highest % that he ever had in Charlotte was 57%, and he generally hovers near 50% (51% for Chicago). He was a horrible fit for them.


And what he did in Toronto.  
He played 10 games at 8 mpg... His impact in Chicago will have a much greater effect on his next contract...

Hell, I hope you guys are right and nobody pays him. Then Chicago can get him back on the cheap. For the way the Bulls run their offense (not well), he's a good fit at PG.

Bottom line I think he needs to stay a Bull.
