NBA rumors: Pelicans waive Chris Copeland

Paul Garcia: The New Orleans #Pelicans waived forward Chris Copeland. Their roster now has 19 players, 15 guaranteed.

More on Chris Copeland Free Agency

Justin Verrier: Pelicans officially announce the signings of Chris Copeland and Robert Sacre. Both on training-camp deals, have been with team this summer.
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.

LeBron James to Adam Silver: I want team in Las Vegas

When asked a question about the NBA hosting the exhibition game in Las Vegas, James used the occasion to make a personal plea to commissioner Adam Silver, angling to be first in line to own the team if the league ever expands to Sin City. “I would love to bring a team here at some point. That would be amazing. I know Adam is in Abu Dhabi right now, I believe,” James said, alluding to the Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks’ preseason trip to the United Arab Emirates that Silver is attending. “But he probably sees every single interview and transcript that comes through from NBA players. “So, I want the team here, Adam. Thank you.”

Luca Vildoza returning to Spain?

During his time in Europe, Vildoza became a symbol of Baskonia. He was loved by the fans, and he embraced the mentality of the club. Baskonia now would love to bring him back to bring that kind of leadership that a young team needs. Contacts between the club and the player’s entourage have already taken place, a source told BasketNews. If Vildoza ends up getting waived by the Bucks before the beginning of the regular season, no one in Europe is better positioned than Baskonia to acquire the player, another source told BasketNews.
