Woj: Pacers and Chris Copeland have a Mutual Interest

Indiana has a strong interest in Copeland, per Yahoo! Sports - USA TODAY Sports

Adrian Wojnarowski did his signature "Woj Bomb" today in his tweets. He said the Pacers and Chris Copeland have a strong, mutual interest. Sounds like Indiana is the favorite for Copeland, at this moment.

According to Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski, the Indiana Pacers and former New York Knicks small forward, Chris Copeland have a strong mutual interest. As we have seen in the first day of free agency, Indiana is targeting a ton of scorers. Outside of Copeland, I have seen many wings connected to the Pacers so far. Those names include Earl Clark, Carlos Delfino, Dorell Wright, and Chase Budinger.

Copeland last season averaged 9 points per game (15 minute average) off the bench for the Knicks last season. At 6'8", Copeland should be able to stretch the floor and be a key perimeter shooter off the bench. Larry Bird addressed during Solomon Hill's introductory press conference today that scoring in the second unit will be key, which hints at why they are pursuing Copeland.

Copeland could give Indiana about 20 minutes off the bench next season, but first they will have to slightly overpay for him to make New York not match. Copeland is a restricted free agent, meaning they can match any offer that is made to him.

Stay tuned to Indy Cornrows as we will have the latest free agency updates involving who Indiana is looking at.
