Paul Garcia: The New Orleans #Pelicans waived forward Chris Copeland. Their roster now has 19 players, 15 guaranteed.
Justin Verrier: Pelicans officially announce the signings of Chris Copeland and Robert Sacre. Both on training-camp deals, have been with team this summer.
David 'Dubi' Pick: The Pelicans and forward Chris Copeland agreed on non-guaranteed deal for training camp, according to source.
Alex Kennedy: The Spurs' free agent camp is today. Chris Copeland, Adonis Thomas, Victor Rudd, Scott Suggs, JJ O’Brien, Darius Adams and more are there.
Alex Kennedy: Spurs free agent camp on 14th will include Chris Copeland, Adonis Thomas, Victor Rudd, Scott Suggs, JJ O’Brien. More players being added.
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.

Charles F. Gardner: Steve Novak has signed with Bucks and is on floor practicing at team shootaround this morning. Chris Copeland released.
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.

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.”
Adrian Wojnarowsk: The NBA plans to negotiate new television/media and Collective Bargaining deals before seriously examining the adding of new teams. The possibilities of Las Vegas and Seattle as expansion candidates are real, but likely years away.
. @macklemore on “NBA Today” regarding NBA basketball returning to Seattle: “Adam [Silver] is on board. It’s a matter of time. I think within the next 2-to-3 years, we will have a team [in Seattle]… The players want it.”
Despite some contacts with a few NBA teams, including the Phoenix Suns, Campazzo seriously considers the proposals from Europe. And in this regard, Real Madrid remain the most realistic opportunity for the player, multiple sources told BasketNews.
Although there’s some level of interest from other EuroLeague clubs, Campazzo is prioritizing the negotiations with Real Madrid, sources confirmed to BasketNews. So a potential landing in other European clubs other than Real Madrid looks unrealistic as of right now.
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.
Chris Haynes: Yahoo Sources: Draymond Green and Jordan Poole have a history, but no players for the Golden State Warriors felt the incident was warranted. Some form of disciplinary action is expected.
