NBA Comparison: Jameer Nelson/Travis Best

James Burbridge - 8/24/2007

Strengths: A true point guard who looks to set up teammates first, a big reason why he averaged 6.7 apg his freshman campaign, good for fourth in the nation; also better than fellow freshman and forth overall selection Mike Conley Jr., who ranked fifth Had an assist to turnover ratio of 2.03, pretty impressive for a freshman leading an extremely young team Also averaged 14.4 ppg on 45% shooting and 44% from beyond the arc, proving that he is also capable of shooting when defenses slack off on him Also a very good free throw shooter at 84% ... Very quick with the ball, also a good ball handler, evidenced by his 3.3 TO per game ... A leader. Very head strong, confident player, plays with a swagger to his game which is impressive in such a young player at such a demanding position.

Weaknesses: Very few under 6' point guards are able to make it in the NBA, and those that do are normally freakish athlete types which Augustin is not ... At 511, he's on the short side for the NBA Seems to either shoot 3 pointers or drive to the basket all the time, will need to develop a mid range stop and pop game for the pros Must bulk up to handle the physicality of the NBA Decent defender, but nothing to write home about, his lateral speed is just average, primarily an offensive player.

Outlook: Reportedly considered entering the 2007 NBA draft with classmate Kevin Durant, but instead chose to return to school for his sophomore year. Another year in school will give Augustin the opportunity to improve his body and strength along with his skills.
