Knicks sign forward Chris CopelandPosted by Inside Hoops
New York Knicks Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations and General Manager Glen Grunwald announced today that the team has signed free agent forward Chris Copeland to a contract. It’s probably a non-guaranteed deal that does not mean he’s sure to make the regular season roster.
Copeland, 6-8, 224 pounds, has played the past five seasons in Belgium, Germany and Spain and appeared in 19 games for Fort Wayne of the NBA D-League in 2006-07. The Orange, NJ native played four years at the University of Colorado and averaged 12.1 points and 5.1 rebounds in 30 games during his senior season in 2005-06. He is currently representing the Knicks entry at the 2012 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
