D.J. Augustin gives Orlando Magic positional flexibility with first-round pick

It is no secret the Orlando Magic have been searching for that on-ball creator who can initiate an offense by setting up teammates or themselves for a while now. The Magic have been cycling through veteran point guards, from C.J. Watson to Shelvin Mack to now D.J. Augustin, since Jameer Nelson left the team in 2014.

D.J. Augustin has played 234 games for the Magic in the last three seasons, including starting 81 games for Orlando this season. Augustin has been reliable if not overlooked. And with the Magic’s group of point guards, Augustin’s consistency was extremely valuable, giving the team a sense of balance.
