Lakers inquire about Chris Copeland

The Lakers are in dire need of improved bench production from last season as well as an upgrade in athleticism. With just the mini mid-level exception worth roughly $3 million to use, they’ll have to find a bargain player somewhere. Monday night, they began their search.



Copeland was a rookie for the Knicks last year and averaged 8.7 points on 47.9% field goal shooting, including 42.1% from downtown. Copeland split nearly equal time between small forward and power forward and could be a nice fit if the Lakers commit to an up-tempo offense.
