Howard Beck referred to what they're doing with Copeland as the "Lin strategy". Copeland has said he's willing to take a pay cut to return to the Knicks so why wouldn't they have the decency to atleast reach out to him, show him some appreciation so that he will sign for the vet min. I get Bargnani and Copeland are both stretch 4s, but if Bargnani gets injured, they're going to need him.@ByNateTaylor A person close to Chris Copeland said the Knicks have not yet reached out to him since free agency began.
@ByNateTaylor's tweet: Copeland is a restricted FA. So Knicks appear to be letting market set price, as they did w/Lin last yr
Now it's being reported by several sources that Pacers and Copeland both have strong mutual interest.
