NBA rumors: Pelicans to add Chris Copeland

More on Chris Copeland Free Agency

Alex Kennedy: According to sources, the Houston Rockets' recent free agent mini-camp included the following: Chris Copeland, Ray McCallum, Phil Pressey, Alex Kirk, Peyton Siva, Greg Whittington, Denzel Livingston, Chris Walker, Victor Rudd, Scott Suggs and Chasson Randle among others.
So I would think that Chris Copeland could be a consideration, as could Kevin Martin. And I would not rule out another point guard, because I think it would be difficult to survive any game that Goran Dragic might have to miss. Even on Saturday, you could see why Erik Spoelstra had to stay with Dragic even after Goran was called for his fourth foul in the third period.
Marc Stein: Chris Copeland has also cleared waivers, according to league sources
Chris Haynes: Bucks have released F Chris Copeland, league source tells @clevelanddotcom.
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.”
Jared Zwerling: Source: Bucks & Chris Copeland have verbally agreed to a 1-year contract. Cope & Jason Kidd have a good relationship from Knicks teammates.
Charles F. Gardner: Chris Copeland meeting with Bucks today, source confirms. Is a get-to-know-you session of sorts. Copeland's 3-point ability a big plus.

The word in Spanish basketball circles, as reiterated to me Friday, is that Marc Gasol is most likely to play for Girona if he decides to play on, even though the LEB Oro is one level below Spain’s top tier. I’m told he has been working out with new Cavaliers guard Ricky Rubio to stay sharp even after negotiating his release earlier this week from Memphis following the Grizzlies’ recent trade with the Lakers to take on the final year of Gasol’s last NBA contract.
Ballots for the NBA’s 75th anniversary team were due back to the league office today. The league previously announced that the official list of its 75 greatest players, as selected by “a blue-ribbon panel of media, current and former players, coaches, general managers and team executives,” will be revealed in October. The voters will also be revealed — not their full individual ballots but the names of those who made the selections.
