Bucks sign Chris Copeland, adding frontcourt depth
MILWAUKEE (AP) The Bucks have signed free-agent forward Chris Copeland, adding veteran depth to their young frontcourt.
General manager John Hammond did not announce terms of the deal Wednesday.
The 6-foot-8 Copeland played the last two seasons in Indiana, averaging 6.2 points and 2.2 rebounds in 50 games in 2014-15.
Undrafted out of Colorado in 2006, Copeland played overseas and in the NBA’s D-League before breaking into the NBA with New York in 2012-13. Bucks coach Jason Kidd also played on that Knicks team.
While with the Pacers, Copeland was stabbed in the elbow and abdomen outside a New York nightclub early in the morning of April 8.
He has apologized for being out so late on a game night. A Bucks spokesman said Copeland has recovered from his injuries.
