Bologna owner Claudio Sabatini has confirmed that Kobe Bryant will join his club during the NBA lockout.
According to Sabatini, all financial details between both parties have been agreed and the contract could be signed within a matter of "hours".
"We have found an agreement with Kobe Bryant regarding the financial aspect," Sabatini told Gazzetta dello Sport. "There are certain details missing and the two signatures, but the announcement could be a case of hours.
"The agreement will be for 10 games as we cannot afford more."
Bryant, 33, recently turned down a move to Turkish club Besiktas.
