Copeland was selected with the 2nd pick of the third round in the 1978 NBA Draft by the Denver Nuggets, but was cut during camp. He signed on with the New York Knicks and appeared in two seasons with them (in 1979-80 and 1981-82), but his career was hampered in his second Knicks season, after he dislocated several bones in his foot during practice.
After his basketball career, he became a hospital-care investigator, a sales representative and a stockbroker.
