FIBA (Federation of International Basketball Associations) has made progress on insurance deals for NBA players looking to play overseas during the league lockout, making Bogut’s NBL debut imminent.

The 2011-12 iiNet NBL Championship tips off on Friday when the Kings face Melbourne - and its NBA guard Patty Mills - at The Cage.

Bogut, drafted at No. 1 by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2005 and on the threshold of All Star status, tweeted yesterday he had “110 per cent” not signed with any of his suitors - the Kings, Adelaide 36ers or Gold Coast.
