Not quite enough information for good answer. Is the Sigma with Canon EOS mount and not Canon FD mount? Does the lens try to go to the adapter at all? Sometimes the adapters can have some part in slight misalignment, which truly prevents turning the lens onto it's place. See if there is some moving part inside the adapter plate, usually belonging to the lens locking mechanism which might be very slightly protruding. Sometimes can be helped by simply pushing the obstacle to it's proper place before turning on the lens.
