Bjelica turns down Sixers; will play in Europe

Forward Nemanja Bjelica has decided to not suit up for the Philadelphia 76ers next and will instead play in Europe, according to a report.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports Bjelica, who had agreed to a one-year deal with Philadelphia on July 5, informed the Sixers of his decision Tuesday morning.

The forward has become an unrestricted free agent after the Minnesota Timberwolves withdrew their qualifying offer.

The 6-foot-10, 240-pound three-year veteran averaged 6.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 20.5 minutes in 67 games (21 starts) for Minnesota last season.

The 30-year-old shot 44.9 percent from the field and 41.5 percent from the 3-point line.
