Free agent forward Nemanja Bjelica, who had agreed to a one-year deal with the Sixers, informed the team on Monday that he will stay in Europe instead.
The NBA just never ceases to amaze. This is a stunning move by Bjelica who apparently never signed his contract with Philadelphia. The team had come to a verbal agreement with him, which was dependent on a physical but apparently the Serbian forward has changed his mind. This is good news for Robert Covington, Dario Saric and Wilson Chandler, who will be splitting the minutes in the forward positions but it will be interesting to see how the Sixers move on from this fiasco.
