Have you tried putting a little gas down into the carburetors throat ? If it starts then you'll know you're dealing with a fuel delivery problem. You claimed you have spark so I'm assuming that it's a good blue color, I think if it was me I would be pulling my flywheel off and checking to make sure it hasn't sheared or moved. If you were able to rule out the fuel delivery issue.

Sounds like water in your carberator. Remove the bowl and check for dirt and water, drain some gas from the tank into a bowl and check for water in the gas. Remove air filter housing and lubrcate all of the carberator linking with a product such as WD-40. Reassemble everything and start again. While you are at it check the spark plug too.

make sure that you have oil and that the airflow is not blocked,,,take the cover and tank off and look underneath, the flywheel is designed to have fins that circulate the airflow, sounds like the piston has welded itself(from lack of oil or airflow) to the cylinder wall. good luck
