NBA free agency rumors: Nemanja Bjelica to meet with Kings despite talk of returning to Europe

Free agent forward Nemanja Bjelica's future seems to be up in the air. 

Despite originally agreeing to a one-year deal with the 76ers and then reportedly opting to return to Europe this season instead of playing in Philadelphia, it now appears Bjelica plans to discuss a deal with the Kings, according to Yahoo Sports. 

The report added: "Kings GM Vlade Divac reached out to Nemanja Bjelica today to explain his value in staying in the NBA versus leaving for Europe."

Bjelica had agreed to a one-year deal worth $4.4 million with the Sixers but never signed his contract. Bjelica informed the team of his decision Monday, according to ESPN.

Bjelica, 30, began his professional career overseas in 2007 and earned EuroLeague MVP honors in 2015. He averaged 6.8 points and 4.1 rebounds per game last season for the Timberwolves.
