The San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder showed interest in Copeland during free agency, but he said Bucks coach Jason Kidd, an ex-Knicks teammate, played the biggest role in signing a one-year, $1.1 million contract with Milwaukee. “The biggest hook for me was Jason Kidd, by far,” Copeland said. “Obviously, he was a friend of mine before all this. He was a great mentor for me in New York and someone I continue to grow under. An incredible mind on and off the floor.”

In training camp, Dudley said, Kidd asked for a show of hands of who thought the Bucks would make the playoffs. When all the hands went up, Kidd assured them — they would definitely make the playoffs. “There was times where I got there at midnight to shoot,” Dudley recalled Sunday. “And I wouldn’t do it that often, maybe every three weeks. And they were there. Grg would sleep there. We would be playing cards, and they would come and say ‘Jared, what were you thinking on this rotation?,’ things like that. At the beginning of the season I was calling the defensive coverages, even though I wasn’t supposed to. One day Jason came to me and said ‘I don’t want you to talk any more. At all. In a game you can do that, but in practice, they need to learn.’ He forced Khris Middleton (to talk). He was clever in that way.”
