The Indiana Pacers have signed restricted free-agent Chris Copeland to a two-year offer sheet, according to multiple reports.

The Pacers have offered Copeland a two-year, $6 million deal which the New York Knicks will be unable to match. After the Knicks re-signed guards J.R. Smith and Pablo Prigioni this week, the Knicks could only offer between $1.7 million and $1.5 million to Copeland. The Pacers steal Copeland away from the team they dispatched in six games during the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Any deal agreed to by free agents and teams can't be made official until July 10.

Copeland, an undrafted rookie last season, averaged 8.7 points-per-game on 47.9 percent shooting from the field and 42.1 percent from three-point range.
