Derrick Gordon is not quite done with basketball.

The senior, who played out his final season of college basketball at Seton Hall after transferring from UMass, tweeted on Tuesday that he will enter the 2016 NBA Draft. On Tuesday March 29, Gordon added that he had signed with Genuine Sports Group, an agency based in San Francisco.

Gordon finished his lone season at Seton Hall averaging 8.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.0 steal a game in a sixth-man role. The Pirates’ first man off the bench, he demonstrated lock-down perimeter defense as well as leadership for a young team absent of any other seniors.

Gordon wrapped up his college career – which also included a pit stop at Western Kentucky – averaging 9.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals a game to accompany a 41.1 percent field goal percentage.

Gordon does not currently appear on any major mock draft boards.
