Struggling Pacers could be on verge of lineup changes


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) 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


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Pacers small forward Chris Copeland is back in the starting lineup for Thursday's game at Portland. Copeland has scored in double digits in four of his past five games.

Chris Copeland's value will never be higher


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) 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
(11/3/2014) 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
(3/5/2014) 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. 


Pacers reserves see some late run


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2014) The Pacers cleared the bench Thursday, in a blowout win over the Knicks. 

With the game clearly in hand, little-used reserves Chris Copeland, Donald Sloan, Orlando Johnson and Rasual Butler all saw playing time. Copeland was the most productive of the four, finishing with four points and four rebounds in five minutes of action, while Sloan and Johnson added two points apiece. Butler was scoreless on three field-goal attempts in five minutes.

The Pacers have a pretty set rotation, so these four rarely see the floor. Though all four have appeared in each of the last three games, none have played double-digit minutes in that span.


Chris Copeland still looking for a role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2013) Pacers forward Chris Copeland continues to see just limited playing time, as he earned a DNP Coach's Decision in Monday's win over the Timberwolves. Copeland has played in just eight of the Pacers' 14 games, averaging 3.9 points and 0.3 rebounds per game.  

Chris Copeland stays limited in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2013) Pacers forward Chris Copeland, who had his knee scoped last month and dealt with knee issues all last year, logged only three minutes in Saturday's preseason opener against the Bulls. He finished with four points and a steal on 1 of 4 shooting from the field, including 0 of 3 from downtown. 

Chris Copeland dealing with knee issue


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Pacers forward Chris Copeland has said his knee is not where it needs to be at the moment, the team's official site reports. Copeland is still dealing with pain in the knee. 

That said, Copeland said he expects to be ready to play when the season opens. Copeland had his knee scoped last month and dealt with knee issues all last year. 

Copeland is expected to run with the second unit for the Pacers after playing with New York last season. 


Copeland joining the Pacers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2013) Free agent forward Chris Copeland will reportedly sign a two-year offer sheet worth $6 million with the Pacers when the free-agency period begins, and the Knicks are not expected to match it, according to Yahoo.com. Copeland is a restricted free agent after playing one season with the Knicks as a 28-year-old rookie.

Copeland gets qualifying offer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2013) The Knicks extended a qualifying offer to Chris Copeland, worthy $988,000, in order to make him a restricted free agent. Copeland is expected to decline that offer to test free agency, looking for a longer-term deal, after making his NBA debut at 28.

Copeland solid in first start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2013) With all of their other options injured, the Knicks turned to rookie forward Chris Copeland to start at center Thursday against the Bulls. Copeland played 29 minutes in the game and held his won offensively, scoring 14 points on 4 of 14 shooting. He made three 3-pointers, while adding five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks, in a 118-111 overtime loss.
