Chris Copeland Awaits Offer From Pacers, Not Ruling Out Return To Knicks
After discussions with the Indiana Pacers since the start of free agency, free agent forward Chris Copeland hasn’t received a contract proposal from the organization and will continue talks on Wednesday, a league source told RealGM.
Copeland has been one of the most sought after wing players in free agency, and he has received multiple offers from other teams that he’ll consider and no frontrunner has emerged, sources said. The New York Knicks offered Copeland a qualifying offer before the free agent process, and both sides know what terms of a new deal would look like should the 29-year-old return and he hasn’t ruled them out, a league source told RealGM.
Copeland exhibited flashes of scoring prowess when given minutes for the Knicks last season, averaging 8.7 points with two 30-point performances.
Copeland has remained loyal to the Knicks for the opportunity the coaching staff provided him, after spending his professional career overseas.
