    AFTER some delays, National Basketball League (NBL) has a start date.

    Kai Sotto of the Philippines is expected to make his debut in the Australian pro league on Dec. 3 as the Adelaide 36ers face the Tasmania JackJumpers.

    The NBL had planned to open the season on Nov. 18 but the move was done to better accommodate fans in the arenas.

    After the 36ers season opener at MyState Bank Arena in Hobart, they make their home debut two days later at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre against China big man Liu Chuanxing and the Brisbane Bullets on Dec. 5.

    Adelaide will face defending champion Melbourne United, featuring Australia Boomers members Matthew Dellavedova and Chris Goulding, when it hosts them on Jan. 30.
