Derrick Gordon

Former Seton Hall guard Derrick Gordon says he was blackballed by the NBA because he's gay, but a number of NBA scouts felt he was simply not a prospect worthy of getting an NBA workout.

"He's not an NBA player based on skillset and ability level," one veteran NBA scout told SNY.tv, adding that Gordon was a "good and tough kid."

Several other scouts told SNY.tv that Gordon simply was not a "draftable prospect" and wasn't worthy of a summer-league invitation as a result.
