Bogut heading home to play in NBL

8:19 am on 15 September 2011

Australia's US-based basketball legend Andrew Bogut is heading home and is tipped to play for the Sydney Kings in this year's National Basketball League.

Bogut has returned home as the dispute between the NBA and the players union in the States could take as long as six months to resolve.

The NBL season was launched on Wednesday and the Kings appear to be the favourites to sign the 2.13 metre Bogut.

The season starts on the 7th of October.
