Stacey Orlando Augmon (born August 1 1968 in Pasadena, California) is an American professional basketball player, formerly in the NBA. He gained the nickname "Plastic Man" due to his athletic ability to "stretch," as can the DC Comics superhero of the same name. He also has a son named Justice.
The Magic decided not to re-sign Augmon for the 2006-07 NBA season, making him an unrestricted free agent. On October 3, 2007, the Denver Nuggets announced the signing of the 15-year veteran, but he was later waived on the 24th. One month and three days later, Denver re-hired Augmon, this time as a player development coach.
The first was following a game March 11, 2005. Greg Sandoval from The Washington Post wrote, "As reporters gathered around the locker of Magic guard Jameer Nelson, a female reporter for a local TV station kneeled down to give cameramen a clear shot and to place a microphone near Nelson, who was sitting. Augmon, whose locker is near Nelson's, made a comment about the woman being on her knees in front of a player that involved a reference to oral sex, a witness told the newspaper."
Two nights later on March 13, Sandoval continues, "Augmon became angered over a question that an Orlando Sentinel reporter asked Magic guard Steve Francis."That's a stupid [expletive] question," Augmon allegedly said, according to several reports. When a male Florida Today reporter told Augmon that they were interviewing Francis and not him, Augmon shouted obscenities and began moving toward the reporter. A Magic employee stepped in front of Augmon, who then threw a bottle of lotion at the reporter. The bottle did not strike the reporter but some of its contents splashed his clothes."Augmon later apologized to the reporter by purchasing him a new suit made of fine Italian silk.
