Chris Copeland says Jason Kidd was 'top reason' he came to Milwaukee

BY foxsports • August 21, 2015

The Milwaukee Bucks haven't typically been a free agent destination, but Jason Kidd may be helping to change that a bit.  

Kidd and the Bucks signed Chris Copeland this offseason, who was a former teammate of Kidd's with the New York Knicks.  

Here's more on what Copeland told Charles F. Gardner of the Journal Sentinel:  

"Jason Kidd has been a top reason," Copeland said of choosing the Bucks after spending the last two years with the Indiana Pacers. "It was a blessing playing with him when we were in New York (during the 2012-'13 season). I learned a lot from him behind the scenes."I watched him in a short period of time show his capabilities as a coach. I just look forward to the opportunity. When they reached out, it was a no-brainer."
