It's a good thing that they are very deep, though, because heading into these quarter finals, both Augustine and starting small forward Victor Claver have suffered season ending injuries. Both are huge losses for the team; Claver brought the team athleticism, size, passing and shooting from the small forward spot that is not readily replaced, and Augustine, who had already missed much of the opening of the season with injury, was a valuable bench rebounder and occasional scorer. (Valencia have brought in 44 year old naturalised Spaniard Darryl Middleton, a man who left Baylor 23 years, and who was previously playing a bench role for LEB Gold team Girona. Middleton has played most of his career in Spain, and used to be one of the best players in it, still able to contribute now despite his more than advanced age. However, Middleton is not eligible for Euroleague play.)

James Augustine

Augustine was previously covered on the Jazz summer league roster recap. Playing for Utah in the Orlando summer pro league, Augustine averaged 6.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3 fouls and 2 turnovers per game. Not great, although he did hit two 3 pointers.

James Augustine

Augustine played for the Jazz in summer league last season too, and shot very well. He spent last year in the Canary Islands with Gran Canaria, averaging 8.6 points and 7.1 rebounds in 25 minutes per game. Augustine remains a two point jumpshot/hookshot whore with average NBA size and an aversion to physical play. Nevertheless, he can still rebound, run and score. And if Jerry Sloan disliked him that much, Augustine wouldn't be back for a second visit.

- James Augustine

James Augustine was in summer league this year with both the Jazz and the Bulls. He played well for both, yet he stayed on in Spain to play a second season with Gran Canaria. Augustine is averaging 9.0 points and 8.5 rebounds in 23 minutes per game in the Eurocup, alongside 7.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game in the ACB. The slight downside is that he's shooting less than 1 free throw a game.
