Wow! The one point guard out of the 3 with a lot of experience. Not saying I don't agree, he was a waste.

I knew there was no way we'd waive stone or Buycks over this guy. Stone/buycks are better and can contribute more to the team.

Agreed. Plus, they are younger.

Augustine should should not have been released. He is way better then stone and Dwight. Casey did not give him the minutes he deserved. What a joke Casey is. I hope after the Raptors are done tanking they get a coach that will bring them to the next level.

He did nothing to keep his place on the roster.

It's hard to do anything to prove yourself when your not given any playing time. Dwayne Casey once again showed he is unable to utilize good players. He's going to go be back up for NY of Brooklyn, or a team with a half decent coach now and tear it up. Good Job Casey

you obviously havent been watching him play as a raptor, because all he ever did was dribble the clock down every possession and never made a play.

Guy hasn't proven himself yet in his career.

Chucker. Best season he had, he shot 41.6 percent.

You get absolutely zero sympathy if you don't put in the effort to get better.

How did he do last season? Is Vogel a shitty coach?

Agree, as he simply was given the backup role to Lowry, but when he played he didn't prove that he was worth that spot. If he had given an all out effort and played like he gave a shit when he was on the floor then maybe he wouldn't have been waived.

i like how casey handled all these pgs. he gave augustine a shot over a few games, then buycks, and now he's looking a bit more at stone. augustine didn't show much, and i like the potential in the other guys. i'm happy they git rid of augustine, although i'm a bit surprised they parted with a guy who has guaranteed money. i figured stone would be gone, but i guess masai likes what he sees in him. he went after him twice and kept him when the prudent financial decision was to lay the axe.

I think Ujiri based the decision on who might have some upside, and when he looked, he decided that Augustin was what he was now without growth potential.
