Scandrick tested positive for MDMA, which is also known as Ecstasy or Molly. He became the 21st player of 104 suspended for performance-enhancing drugs to test positive for MDMA.
In a statement released through his agent, Ron Slavin, Scandrick insisted he did not knowingly take a banned substance.
“I would like to apologize to my children, my family, the Jones Family, my coaches, my teammates and my fans,” Scandrick said in the statement. “Failing a drug test is far out of my character, and although I never knowingly took a performance-enhancing drug/banned stimulant while on vacation in Mexico, I take full responsibility for what goes in my body and more importantly for the embarrassment of a failed drug test. It’s my goal by issuing this statement to clear my name and more importantly to be judged by what happens to me in the future.
