Atlantic Notes: Copeland, Pierce, Nets, Raptors

Chris Copeland is a restricted free agent this summer after the Knicks offered him a qualifying offer for one year at $988,872 on June 26th. Shams Charania of reports that the 6'8" Copeland would like to remain in a Knicks uniform despite interest from other NBA teams and overseas clubs, like FC Barcelona. Copeland's agent, John Spencer, told Charania:

"Returning is very much an option […] He turned down several options to play, turned down enormous money to get an NBA opportunity last year. He wants to play and wants to contribute. The Knicks are a good organization, with Mike Woodson and the list goes on.

“There’s a chance another team will potentially pick him up, obviously, but the Knicks gave Chris the opportunity to play and he’s loyal because of that.”

The Knicks would only be able to offer Copeland the mini midlevel exception if he returned next season. There's more from Knicks-land, including their escalating rivalry with the team across the East River, who made a splash with a certain blockbuster trade on draft night.

    As a Raptors fan, a trade centered around Bledsoe and Butler for Bargnani and DeRozan…. I would like. I would like a lot. I’d assume that would signal that Kyle Lowry would be available… (as it would seem odd to keep Both Bledsoe and Lowry… as they both PGs and are pretty similar)

    That trade works well for both sides. I think Bledsoe would flourish in in Toronto.
