Chris Copeland said that Jason Kidd was a "top reason" he decided to join the Bucks as a free agent this offseason.

"Jason Kidd was the top reason," Copeland said of signing with Milwaukee. "It was a blessing playing with him while we were in New York. I learned a lot from him behind the scenes. When they reached out, it was a no-brainer." Copeland will be buried on the depth chart in Milwaukee, so it'll take more than a few injuries for him to gain any sort of relevancy in standard fantasy leagues. Feel free to ignore Copeland on draft day.

The Bucks have announced the signing of F Chris Copeland.

The contract is reportedly a one-year deal, so there isn't a lot of risk involved for the Bucks here. Copeland will simply provide some 3-point shooting in a limited role this season, so he isn't expected to be a factor in fantasy leagues.

Chris Copeland will sign with the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.

While terms of the contract are unclear, Copeland's deal will reportedly be for one year. While the 31-year-old will bring some veteran depth to a young Bucks squad, it will be tough for him to earn enough playing time to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 28 - 12:46 PM

Chris Copeland has reportedly verbally agreed to a one-year deal with the Bucks.

Copeland and head coach Jason Kidd have a good relationship from when they were teammates on the Knicks, and Copeland will provide the Bucks with some outside shooting. However, he'll have a lot of competition for playing time in Milwaukee, so it'll be tough for him to earn enough minutes to become a relevant name in standard fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, Chris Copeland had a "strong workout and visit" with the Bucks on Tuesday but the Spurs and Thunder are still "in [the] mix."

ESPN's Marc Stein reported that Copeland was expected to finalize a deal with the Bucks this week, but that no longer seems like a given. No matter where he lands, Copeland won't offer fantasy owners more than a handful of 3-pointers in a reserve role.

The Bucks and free agent Chris Copeland are expected to finalize a contract this week, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

He had a physical on Tuesday and it seems there were no red flags, clearing the way for what will likely be a short-term, minimum-salary deal. The 6'8" Copeland gives coach Jason Kidd some 3-point shooting to bring off the bench but his situational use isn't likely to yield fantasy value.

The Bucks Tuesday meeting with Chris Copeland was reportedly a "get-to-know-you session."

The Bucks have been looking to bolster their outside scoring this offseason, and reportedly wanted to see if Copeland would be a good fit with the franchise. They do have an open roster spot, and Copeland certainly provides them with a player that can stretch the floor, although no deal is imminent at this point. Copeland would add some depth to the roster, but it's unlikely he'd earn enough minutes with Milwaukee to turn out any fantasy value in standard leagues.
Jul 21 - 6:30 PM

Chris Copeland is in Milwuakee for a physical, according to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.

Copeland will also meet with Bucks officials while in Milwaukee and it sounds as if a contract agreement is imminent as long as his physical checks out. If signed, the 31-year-old will help provide a young Bucks team with some veteran depth, but it's unlikely he'll see enough playing time to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 21 - 1:29 PM

The Milwaukee Bucks have expressed interest in restricted free agent Chris Copeland.

The Bucks will join three other reported teams who are interested in Copeland's services and the 31-year-old is expected to make his decision by Thursday. While Copeland is a solid rotational player, he'll need to land in a perfect situation in order to see enough playing time to make a difference in fantasy leagues.
Jul 14 - 1:57 PM

The Wizards have expressed interest in restricted free agent Chris Copeland.

Copeland would provide Washington with some depth and outside shooting, but it would be tough for him to establish himself as a standard league asset with the Wizards.
Jul 2 - 4:23 PM

Chris Copeland (elbow) is listed as out for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder as expected.

Copeland is scheduled to return home Sunday, but all indications point to him missing the rest of the season. As always, we will update his statues when new details become available.
Apr 12 - 12:51 PM

Chris Copeland is scheduled to fly back home to Indianapolis on Sunday, according to head coach Frank Vogel.

It's nice to hear that Copeland is progressing well in his recovery, but there's almost no chance he returns to action before the regular-season ends. We'll continue to update his status as new information becomes available, but it sounds like he's on his way to making a full recovery.
Apr 10 - 6:14 PM

Chris Copeland (elbow, abdomen) will remain sidelined for Friday's game vs. Detroit.

He was the victim in a stabbing just two days ago, and there's a good chance he misses the remainder of the regular season. We wish him a speedy recovery.
Apr 10 - 12:52 PM

Chris Copeland (elbow, abdomen) vowed to return stronger than ever after suffering a stab wound on Tuesday night.

Copeland is recovering in a New York hospital's intensive care unit and released a statement following his surgery. "I just want to thank everyone for their well wishes and prayers.

We'll look for updates on Copeland over the next few days, but it sounds like he's primed for a full recovery.
