Portland Trail Blazers point guard Patty Mills has cut short his stay with the Melbourne Tigers and will play for a Chinese league club during the NBA lockout.
Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut might join fellow Australian Patty Mills and play in the Australia's National Basketball League during the NBA lockout.
Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony say they will consider offers to play professional basketball in China if there is no resolution to the NBA lockout.
Meanwhile, Portland Trail Blazers point guard Patty Mills says he is looking into a move back to his native Australia to play in the National Basketball League as long as the NBA lockout continues.
"The most important thing for me is to find somewhere to play," Mills told Australian Associated Press. "Definitely NBL teams have reached out. I am looking at that, but also teams in Europe and other options. But right now there is no rush in making a decision; it will come over the next couple of months."
