Patrick Mills

Exciting Boomers guard Patty Mills is considering playing in the NBL as he weighs up his options during the NBA lockout.

Currently in a Boomers camp on the Gold Coast, Mills has been linked with Adelaide as uncertainty surrounds the next NBA season.

Officially the NBA season tips off in November - but the current lockout could last months and cause it to be scrapped.

The lockout has ensured Australia’s NBA star Andrew Bogut and fellow Boomers big man David Andersen will not feature in the Oceania Olympic qualifying series against New Zealand in September.

It also initially threatened Mills’ availability for the three-match series against the Kiwis.

But Portland-based Mills confirmed on Tuesday that he would suit up for Australia - but after that his future remained clouded.
