    Restricted free agent Chris Copeland of the New York Knicks signed an offer sheet with the Indiana Pacers on Friday, his agent, John Spencer, confirmed to

    The offer is for two years, $6 million, which means the Knicks will not be able to match because they only have about $1.7 million available for a 2013-14 salary -- a slice of their $3.18 million mini mid-level exception. The other portion went to Pablo Prigioni.

    The Knicks didn't make an offer to Copeland, instead waiting on him to test the open market. The 29-year-old forward, who wrapped up his rookie season in New York, initially was interested in returning.
