Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - The Indiana Pacers officially signed forward Chris Copeland on Sunday.

Copeland averaged 8.7 points on 47.9 percent shooting (42.1 percent from 3- point range) and 2.1 rebounds in 56 games with the New York Knicks last season.

"I'm excited to have Chris as part of the Pacers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president of basketball operations. "He's a great addition to our team because he's a guy that can come in off the bench and create his own shot or get into the paint. He's a good guy and a great competitor and we're happy to have him join us."

Before signing with the Knicks in 2012, Copeland played overseas with Okapi Aalstar (Belgium), TBB Trier (Germany) and Torrons Vicens (Spain). He also played one season in the NBA Developmental League.

"He gives us great versatility off our bench," said Pacers coach Frank Vogel. "His story is a great story of perseverance and he reached a level where he was a key player on a 54-win team last year."
