Philadelphia’s Alexey Shved has hoped to continue his NBA career as an unrestricted free agent at season’s end, but the Russian guard will instead strongly consider returning to Europe where he has received outlines for multi-million dollar offers, league sources told RealGM. RealGM

Nevertheless, Shved has lost enjoyment for his current situation due to low minutes. The 6-foot-6 product averaged nearly 23 minutes as a rookie, but just 10.5 per game a season ago. Despite being one of their most productive players this season, the 76ers have played Shved only 16.8 minutes a game. Before dealing Shved to the 76ers, the Minnesota Timberwolves scanned several other teams interested in him, including the Indiana Pacers, league sources said. If he ultimately returns to Europe as a free agent, Shved, 26, would recoup significant minutes and a lucrative offer comparable to, if not higher than, his NBA value. RealGM

With a fresh start in Philadelphia, Alexey Shved believes he will get more opportunities than he had in his two seasons with the Timberwolves. In a three-team trade in August, former Wolves players Shved and Luc Mbah a Moute went to the 76ers and Kevin Love went to Cleveland. In turn, the Wolves received Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett from Cleveland and Thaddeus Young from the Sixers. "For me, it's much better because I can show my potential in the game," Shved said.

An NBA source said Shved has a chance for some minutes and that Mbah a Moute is also expected to stay, as opposed to being waived or bought out. Young, who makes $9.2 million, was likely to decline his $9.7 million player option next summer, making him an unrestricted free agent. This way, Hinkie gets something in return for Young.
