One of the true surprises this season has been Bulls guard D.J. Augustin. Signed after the Raptors waived him last fall, Augustin entered the rotation after Derrick Rose's injury and amazingly, has become the scoring point gaurd their struggling offense needs. He's scoring 14.3 points per game with the Bulls, averaging over five assists per game, and shooting 42 percent from three with a 16.5 PER. CSN Chicago notes that much like the Bulls' backup point guard who emerged last year, Augustin is looking for a subsantial new deal this summer, but wants to stay in the Windy City. Nate Robinson parlayed a huge second half and stellar postseason run with Chicago in 2013 into a multi-year deal with the Denver Nuggets last offseason. This season D.J. Augustin is the new Robinson. But the current Bulls floor general isn't looking to bolt Chicago anytime soon. [MORE: D.J.

[Tom Thibodeau] has given me the opportunity to play and get better. It's been great for me."
