If you listen to Hodge, he says he turned down NBA training camp invites and offers in Europe and China because he was waiting for a Australian team to offer him a deal. He still doesn't have a reliable jumpshot, but with the quality of the Australian league, he can still be a MVP here without one.
The Melbourne Tigers suck this year because of injuries, thats the only reason they signed him, they went into the season with a no-import policy.
