3 Milwaukee Bucks that need a big month of March — D.J. Augustin

D.J. Augustin has struggled to maintain any consistency on the offensive end this season, and February was his worst shooting month yet.

Managing to put up 7.1 points per game, the veteran floor general shot just 34.1 percent from the floor and 33.9 percent from distance throughout 15 appearances this last month. Although he did serve as a viable playmaker by putting up 3.9 assists in that span, scoring has consistently been the guard’s biggest weak spot.

As a veteran that can score the ball, space the floor, and make plays for others, Augustin is the piece that can turn Milwaukee’s bench from good to great if he can find his footing with the team.

If his struggles persist through March, the front office could have a difficult decision to make before the March 25 deadline. As reported by Yahoo! Sports Vince Goodwill, the Bucks were already reportedly in the running for backup point guard Derrick Rose before he got traded to the New York Knicks last month.

Perhaps they could still be monitoring the market for a backup if these struggles from Augustin continue. However, that is only speculation, and Augustin can silence those questions if he can string together a solid stretch of games in March.

Much like the rest of the Bucks, the guard had a rough night to start the month, chipping in just seven points on 2-of-5 shooting in last night’s loss.
