Euroleague star Sergio Rodriguez has agreed to a one-year, $8 million deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources tell The Vertical.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 4, 2016
The Nets and Rodriguez reportedly talked about a multi-year deal, with his family members telling people it was a done deal. But it wasn't. The morning after the agreement with Lin, Rodriguez was tweeting about still being part of Real Madrid.
Similarly, Chris Broussard reported Friday that the Nets would work out Jennings in Los Angeles, the morning after team officials had met with Jeremy Lin and sealed the deal that Lin tweeted out Friday morning.
Later that day, Jennings was asked on Twitter about the workout.

Then, Sunday, he complained that people think he's still hurt -- he blew out his achilles 19 months ago.
Imma say this one last time. I'm healthy. And I love the game. I don't know why the perception of me is I don't like basketball— Brandon Jennings (@thinkiminthe90s) July 3, 2016
The Knicks decided to take a chance on him.

The deal, according to various reports, is one year for $5 million.
On Sunday, another potential point guard candidate, Rajon Rondo agreed to a two year, $28 million contract with the Bulls.
The Nets currently don't have a veteran back-up point guard on the roster. They're expected to sign Miami's Tyler Johnson to a $50 million offer sheet Thursday.
