Word comes from Australia that Julius Hodge, the former Nugget, is working out with the Nets. Hodge, who played for the Adelaide 36ers last season, was invited by Kiki Vandeweghe, who drafted him in 2005. The 24-year-old, 6'-7" guard disappointed in Denver, then was shot along a Colorado highway. He later played for the Bucks. This season, he averaged 23.7 ppg in the D-League and 24.6 in Australia's NBL.
