Hodgson released from the last 12 months of his contract. Good win for the 36ers as he's gone backwards in the last 12 months IMHO.

Apologies, I have no interest in Boomers news so skimmed over Gozus post after the first line. We really should have two topics instead of one,
Having said that I did offer my opinion of the event which noone did on the original post and I encourage people to do that on this site.

Yeah not sure I would want Cadee back on the Sixers and certainly not for 3 years, the Bullets can have him. They're also looking to bring back Cameron Bairstow.

36ers talk is young Aussies Harry Froling & Jack McVeigh about to sign on, Drmic supposedly re-signed and Brock Motum possible replacement for Childress.

A couple of more signings today the Sydney Kings have signed young local guard Tom Wilson for one year with an option for a second year. The 6'4" guard signed in Serbia last season but after a contract dispute joined the Kings as a training player later in the season. He has also played for the Melbourne Tigers in the SEABL.

The Perth Wildcats have also announced that Rhys Vague has been elevated to the full roster for next season signing a 2 year deal. The 6'9" forward has spent the past four seasons at the club as a development player and is currently playing in the SEABL for Dandenong.
