Matt Hodson Brisbane Bullets – Do One Year deal with Sources


THE Brisbane Bullets’ busy free agency has continued with the signing of Matt Hodgson to a one-year deal.

Hodgson, 26, was a surprise free agent, after he asked to be released from his Adelaide 36ers contract, and it didn’t take long for him to put pen to paper with a new team.

The Australian big-man joins a Bullets team that’s been extremely active since the opening of NBL free agency, as he’s set to join the likes of Cameron Gliddon and and Mika Vukona, both of whom are new additions. Jason Cadee has also signed with the Bullets, sources said, though the terms of that deal aren’t yet known.

News of Hodgson joining the Bullets was first reported on Twitter by Channel 10’s Lachy Reid.

Since being released from his 36ers contract, Hodgson received interest from all seven other NBL teams, sources said, ultimately verbally agreeing to a deal with Andrej Lemanis and the Bullets earlier in the week.

Hodgson averaged 4.5 points and 3.2 rebounds per game, for a 36ers side that reached the 2018 NBL Grand Final.

The 6’11 centre out of Ipswich, Queensland will play under Lemanis, whom he became accustomed to during the Australian Boomers’ 2017 FIBA Asia Cup campaign, as well as the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.
