TORONTO - The Raptors officially announced the signing of veteran point guard D.J. Augustin on Monday.

“Adding a young, experienced point guard to our roster was one of our objectives going into this off-season,” Raptors president and general manager Masai Ujiri said in a release.

“D.J. will provide experience and give us depth in the backcourt.” Augustin, a slender guard played last season primarily as a reserve for Indiana, often with fellow new Raptors edition Tyler Hansbrough.

He previously started for the Charlotte Bobcats.

In 358 regular-season games (with 147 starts) Augustin has averaged 9.6 points, 4.0 assists and 24.5 minutes.

The New Orleans native will battle Dwight Buycks for minutes behind Kyle Lowry.
