Struggling Pacers could be on verge of lineup changes
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/12/14) Nothing is working these days for the Pacers, losers of six straight and owners of a 7-15 record. So Frank Vogel is considering lineup changes that could result in small forward Chris Copeland and point guard Rodney Stuckey assuming bench roles, according to the Indianapolis Star.
"Our chemistry is not very good with that group," said stalwart starter David West, who scored just two points in a Wednesday night loss to the Clippers. "We've got to work on it. Thank God for those other guys, the second unit guys keeping some of these games close, because we just haven't been able to start the games well. We get down and really put the team in a bad way."
Copeland has started the last four games and hit just 8 of 29 from the field. Stuckey has been far steadier, but is averaging a mere 2.8 assists per game.
Pacers put Chris Copeland back in starting lineup

Chris Copeland's value will never be higher
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(11/12/14) Chris Copeland has been a big part of the Pacers' offense early this season, as they try desperately to stay afloat in the wake of a ton of injuries. He is now 83 percent owned in CBSSports.com leagues, and he might be a sell-high candidate, as I discussed at the Fantasy Basketball Today Blog Wednesday:
"Copeland could barely get off the bench for the Pacers when they were contending for a title, which should tell you all you need to know about what the coaching staff thinks. … [His] role has an expiration date, and Copeland is shooting like he knows it, averaging 16.2 field-goal attempts per-36 minutes.
He has some skills as a scorer, but he doesn't really move the need for the Pacers, and they know it. As soon as David West is back, Copeland's minutes will be halved, at least."
If you could get something of value for Copeland, now is the time to do.
Report: Knicks, Pacers discussing J.R. Smith-Chris Copeland swap
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(11/3/14) The Knicks and Pacers have discussed a potential deal that would send forward Chris Copeland to New York in exchange for guard J.R. Smith, per the New York Post on Monday.
Copeland had a stint with the Knicks earlier in his career before signing with the Pacers in the offseason. Copeland has an expiring deal, while Smith can opt out of the $6.4 million he has coming in 2015-16.
According to the paper, the Knicks won't make any moves until Dec. 15, when 2014 free-agent signees and 2014 draft picks are eligible to be traded.
Chris Copeland earns rare playing time
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/14) Pacers forward Chris Copeland appeared in his first game in more than a week Wednesday against the Bobcats, after four straight DNP's.
Copeland played just 12 minutes late in a 109-87 loss, and wasted little time filling it up in his rare bit of playing time. He scored 11 points on 3 of 5 shooting, with all of his attempts coming from three-point range. Copeland also added two rebounds, while turning the ball over twice in the 109-87 loss.
Copeland was supposed to help buoy a weak bench, but he has been almost entirely a nonfactor for the Pacers this season. Copeland has scored in double figures just twice while averaging just 3.3 points in 26 games.
