 LAS VEGAS (AP) -The Charlotte Bobcats signed first-round draft picks D.J. Augustin and Alexis Ajinca on Tuesday.
Under the NBA's rookie scale, Augustin will make about $1.8 million next season and nearly $2 million the next. Ajinca will make about $1 million next year, then $1.1 million in year two. The Bobcats hold team options for their third and fourth seasons.
