I have my doubts if Gordon wants to be in NOLA, but I have no doubt that he is injury prone.
He is injured that is why he isn't playing. I couldn't imagine many players in the league delibrately faking an injury just because he doesn't want to play in New Orleans. These guys love basketball they dont know much else.
Why the hell wouldn't he want to be part of this core team with the potential they have?
By not playing he isn't doing himself any favours for future trades.
