Pistons introduce Augustin, Butler
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Pistons introduced D.J. Augustin and Caron Butler on Tuesday after signing the two free agents in an offseason makeover.
The 6-foot-7 Butler played 56 games last season for Milwaukee and Oklahoma City, averaging 10.5 points and shooting 39 percent from 3-point range. He’s familiar with new Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy, having played for him in Miami a decade ago.
Augustin was waived by Toronto early last season, but the 26-year-old point guard caught on with Chicago and averaged 13.1 points for the season. He shot 40 percent from beyond the arc.
The Pistons also signed Jodie Meeks this offseason. He was introduced Monday.
