Whats up with Granger???
I liked Cope and was hoping to retain him at a reasonable price, but 2 years $6mil is without question too much IMO.
Wish the man luck and happy he got a nice little contact for himself..... but had to be the Hicks that signed him?! Puck the Facers

Vaya Con Dios Cope and thank you for your service. Now go eat some corn your motherfu#"@r
Sorry to inform u .. we didnt need a 40 minute Melo, his slow halfcourt ISO-Melo-offense of walking the ball is only good for 30 minutes per game.
The other 18 minutes belong to Copeland, which makes Copeland apart of a 8-Man rotation.
Amare & K-Mart are PF that perform better with Copeland at SF, and no ISO-Melo in the lineup.
Next season looks like a diasaster waiting to happen with no "Old-Heads" input before each game, and ISO-Melo forcing bigmen to sit on the bench for his 40 minutes of playingtime at the PF spot.
Copeland's raw skills will be able to mix it up well at both forward spots in Pacers bigman rotation with Hibbert/West/Hansbro/Plumlee, being another top-3 rebounding team next season.
Copeland is 28 he needed the $ cant hate him for that. Both games I was at this year he got mad love from the fans I was sure he was going to be a Knick for a long time. Hurts to see him go more then Novak that's for sure. We lost a streaky scorer/ spot up shooter, his defense usually sucked.
I dont think the Knicks are done with free agency at all. There is still abut 40-50 serviceable dudes out there.
I personally like Shaun Livingston, Corey Brewer, Ivan Johnson, Will Bynum, Speights, Blair, Hickson
I doubt we can afford most of those guys.
Some other names might be cheaper scoop...
Pachulia, Pargo, Telfair, Jermaine Oneal?, Mullens, Kaman, Foye, Ebanks, Dalembert, Beaubois, Ayon, Barnes
Idk just throwing around names...
The fact we let Copeland leave to a rival franchise shows how weak this franchise is.
We will forever be a treadmill team.
Financially we were strapped we had no choice. Couldn't match the offer since our early bird rights enabled us to match a max of 1.7 mil offer.
We had to choose between priggy and cope and given the state of the franchise, priggs was the more pressing need.

If we can get Delfino, losing Cope means nothing. I take Delfino over him 10 out of 10 times.

I wish Cope the Best ! Doesn't help that he is going to the Pacers but they put up the money which we couldn't pay him and he had to take it due to age and getting into the NBA the hard way. Just like Fields and Lin, if you got the opportunity, take it and run, loyalty comes last in the NBA, it's a business nothing personal.
I don't know how some of us didn't see this coming. With all the experience front court players on the team and in FA...the results were obvious. Copeland played well, but his services can be replaced. Unless we unloaded Amare... Copeland would have never seen much playing time and/or paycheck. I wouldn't want to sit on a team where the position I'll be playing is promised to a overpayed injury prone player and someone whom is known for scoring most of the teams points. I'm not suprised at all.
