Changes like this needs to be discussed in python-ideas first . The current behavior is as below : 

>>> a, b += 1, 2
  File "<stdin>", line 1
SyntaxError: illegal expression for augmented assignment

See also for some reference to the initial PEP proposal :

There is also a comment related to this where this error is raised

Augmented assignments can only have a name, a subscript, or an
attribute on the left, though, so we have to explicitly check for

I would propose closing this now and reopening this if there is some consensus on moving forward with this in python-ideas.
