THE BRONX - As the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas wraps up, News 12 The Bronx takes a look at the career of a former Saint Raymond High School star. Following his standout career at North Carolina State, Julius Hodge was selected in the first round of the 2005 draft by the Denver Nuggets. After one-and-a-half unproductive seasons in the Mile High City, Hodge was traded to Milwaukee and subsequently released by the Bucks in February of this past season. Then in April 2006, Hodge was shot by another motorist on a Denver highway. Now, with his health restored, Hodge is trying to resurrect his career with the Seattle Supersonics.
