Augustine played the 2010-11 Euroleague with Power Electronics Valencia, averaging 3.4 points and 3.1 rebounds and helping his team to reach the quarterfinals. He was the 2009-10 Eurocup's best rebounder with Gran Canaria, pulling down 7.4 boards per game. He also averaged 9.1 points on 88.2% free throws in 14 games that season, helping Gran Canaria to reach the Eurocup quarterfinals. Augustine has also played for Orlando in the NBA and Anaheim in the NBA Development League since finishing his college career at the University of Illinois (NCAA). At Khimki, Augustine will join forces with Paul Davis, who signed a two-year deal to play center a day earlier.
