D.J. Augustin (Guard) - Waiver Wire Pickup

Max Loudermilch - RotoBaller

Baller Move: Add in Deep Leagues

Analysis: The second option point guard has been making it rain over the past week. Augustin has had a bunch of 10+ point/8+ assist games, and recently he has been playing like an early round hot agent. In Monday's game, he put up 27 points (5 threes) to go with 4 boards, 4 assists, and a steal.  He looks like the kind of player that would make for a great Darren Collison-type option: a shooter that can contribute significant value in several categories. Augustin will have a few duds, but he's quite consistent overall. At 29.2 minutes per game, owners should feel comfortable knowing that this factor doesn't make much of a difference in his game.  In the month of January, Augustin is going for 14.6 points (2.1 threes), 2.7 rebounds, 6.3 assists, and 1.0 steals. For these reasons, he makes for a great investment for standard leagues and a golden opportunity if he's still available in deeper leagues. You should be sprinting to add him, as he's the best hot agent on the wire right now.
