D.J. Augustin is the new Jameer Nelson


"(Van Gundy) is a hard-nosed coach, kind of like coach Thibs is," said Augustin, known for his abilities in a pick-and-roll style offense. "He lets you play your game, as long as you play hard. He had Jameer Nelson, when he had Dwight Howard (in Orlando), and I kind of play like Jameer. "They have some good big men. (Van Gundy) wanted guys who can shoot and spread the floor."

From the New Orleans Advocate. Augustin spoke at his youth camp at Xavier University in Louisiana -- a few other quotes in there worth reading if you're looking to pass the time.
