Former St. Raymond hoopster Hodge heads to Milwaukee from Denver

Former Saint Raymond hoops star Julius Hodge's time with the Denver Nuggets is up.

The Nuggets traded the guard/forward and point guard Earl Boykins to the Milwaukee Bucks for backup guard Steve Blake. Hodge recently returned to the Denver lineup from the NBA Developmental League. He was shot five times last April when a gunman pulled up next to his car.

The Bucks misfortune of having four starters benched due to injuries could be Hodge's good fortune. Team officials hope Hodge will be able to join players on the court Friday as Milwaukee plays the 76ers.
