According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Pelicans are interested in Knicks forward, Chris Copeland. The 29-year-old averaged 8.7 points and 2.1 rebounds in 15.4 minutes off the bench as a rookie this season.
According to an NBA source, the newly named New Orleans Pelicans are planning to make a strong bid for [Chris Copeland] as they are well under the salary cap and can make an offer that will blow Knicks owner James Dolan out of the water.
The Knicks can match any Copeland offer since he is a restricted free agent, but only up to $3.1 million — their mini mid-level exception. Since the Pelicans are under the cap, they can easily top that number.
