The Magic have waived F Chris Copeland.
The Magic acquired Copeland with the sole purpose of waiving him in order to reach the salary cap floor, so mission complete. He'll likely earn another NBA contract, but isn't a fantasy option in any setting. Feb 25 - 5:32 PM

The Magic plan to waive Chris Copeland, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

The Magic claimed Copeland off waivers from the Bucks on Wednesday, but reportedly plan to waive him within the next 24 hours. The move was made to allow the Magic to reach the NBA salary floor and Copeland can continue to be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

The Magic have reportedly claimed Chris Copeland off waivers.

Copeland will add some frontcourt depth to the Orlando roster, where he'll compete for reserve minutes with the likes of Ersan Ilyasova and Andrew Nicholson. Copeland is not a fantasy option in most leagues.

Bucks waive F Chris Copeland.

Copeland really never got off the ground in Milwaukee, and he'll now look for his next NBA home.
Feb 22 - 11:33 AM

The Bucks have reportedly waived Chris Copeland in order to make room for Steve Novak on the roster.

Copeland had fallen out of the rotation in Milwaukee, and it's unlikely he has any fantasy value in his next destination. Leave him on the wire.

The Bucks could cut Chris Copeland to create a roster spot for Steve Novak.

Optimus Cope gained some fans in Indiana and New York, but he's not a lock to wind up on any team. Leave Copeland on the wire.
Feb 20 - 4:54 PM

Despite starting for the Bucks on Wednesday, Chris Copeland only had eight points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one steal in 19 minutes.

He's not a good defender and his role will be even smaller once Giannis Antetokounmpo (suspension) returns, and especially when Jabari Parker (knee) gets back on the court. Ignore Copeland.

Chris Copeland will start on Wednesday against the Knicks.

Copeland got off to a blazing start last season before he eventually fell out of the rotation in Indiana, so he actually may have a chance to provide some short-term value in deeper leagues with Jabari Parker (knee) still on the shelf. Give the streaky shooter a look if you need a couple 3-pointers.

Jason Kidd hinted that Chris Copeland may be in the starting lineup for the Bucks on opening night with Giannis Antetokounmpo set to serve a one-game suspension.

Antetokounmpo will be unavailable for the Bucks when they kick off their season on October 28, due to the flagrant-2 foul he picked up against Mike Dunleavy in last year's playoffs. Kidd will run with a starting lineup of Michael Carter-Williams, Rashad Vaughn, Kris Middleton, Copeland and Greg Monroe for Friday's preseason finale against Minnesota, and while Vaugn would likely return to the bench for the season opener, Copeland is a realistic option to start at the four-spot. If he does indeed start on opening night, he'd be worth considering as a punt play in DFS.

Chris Copeland scored 16 points with six rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes on Saturday.

He's been away from the team for a family matter and got it going right away. If Jabari Parker (knee) is held out to start the season, Copeland could get noteworthy minutes at power forward. He's only worth a look in ridiculously deep leagues.

Chris Copeland (personal) returned to practice on Thursday.

Copeland will need more than a few injuries to the guys ahead of him on the depth chart before we can consider him a viable option in most leagues.

Chris Copeland is set to return to the Bucks after spending time with his ailing mother.

While Copeland will provide the Bucks with a veteran presence off the bench, he is currently buried on the depth chart. Unless Milwaukee is hit with a slew of injuries, the 31-year-old can be left undrafted in standard fantasy leagues.

Chris Copeland declined to discuss the stabbing that landed him in the hospital.

Copeland sustained wounds that had him in critical condition, and he's still dealing with fallout from the incident. "It's not something I'm going to talk about right now," he said, while confirming that he was physically back to full strength. Now, Copeland will reunite with Jason Kidd after the two spent time together in New York. "I knew he'd be someone I'd want to play for," Copeland said.

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.
