Bucks sign Chris Copeland, adding frontcourt depth

MILWAUKEE (AP) - -

The Bucks have signed free agent forward Chris Copeland, adding veteran depth to their young frontcourt.

General manager John Hammond did not announce terms of the deal Wednesday.

The 6-foot-8 Copeland played the last two seasons in Indiana, averaging 6.2 points and 2.2 rebounds in 50 games in 2014-15.

Undrafted out of Colorado in 2006, Copeland played overseas and in the NBA's D-League before breaking into the NBA with the New York Knicks in 2012-13. Bucks coach Jason Kidd was Copeland's teammate on that Knicks team.

While with the Pacers, Copeland was stabbed in the elbow and abdomen outside a New York nightclub early in the morning of April 8. He has apologized for being out so late on a game night.
