Weeks ago, the Philadelphia 76ers reportedly agreed to a deal with free-agent forward Nemanja Bjelica to join the team on a one-year deal. However, it appears he will not be joining them — or any other NBA team next season — so he can stay in Europe.
According to multiple reports, Bjelica will not be officially signing with the Sixers. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports (via Twitter) that Bjelica intends to stay in Europe next season and informed the team of his decision this morning.
Free agent forward Nemanja Bjelica — who had agreed to a one-year deal with the 76ers — informed the team on Monday that he will stay in Europe this season, league sources tell ESPN. He never signed his contract with Philadelphia.
