We’ve heard a little about the players that the Cavaliers are pursuing in free agency, including Earl Clark and Darren Collison, Chauncey Billups, Greg Oden, and Nikola Pekovic, but a new name has emerged as a frontcourt option. ESPN New York’s Jared Zwerling reports that the Cavaliers may be prepared to offer New York Knicks center Chris Copeland a multi-year contract. Source: Cavs now in play for Copeland with a potential multiyear deal. Also Pacers might be working a trade to create space for savvy vet. — Jared Zwerling (@JaredZwerling) July 4, 2013 Copeland was a 28-year-old rookie last season for the Knicks, playing in 56 games (13 starts), posting 8.7 points and 2.1 rebounds in 15.4 minutes per contest. At 6’9″ and 235 pounds, Copeland has a power forward build, but played a lot of center for the small-ball minded Knicks last season. His game is based on the outside, where he connected on a stunning 42.1% of his threes with 59 made in 56 games. Copeland won Rookie of the Month honors last April. After playing four years in college at Colorado, Copeland played in the D-League in 2007 before moving to Europe to play five seasons in four different countries. The Cavaliers have a plethora of big man demanding minutes if they sign one in free agency with top pick Anthony Bennett joining Tristan Thompson, Anderson Varejao, and Tyler Zeller on the roster. A trade is certainly possible in such a scenario. Related: Cavs Need To Just Walk Away From Andrew Bynum
