08:21 AM ET 04.11 | Will he or won't he? Jamaal Franklin may indeed enter the NBA Draft and forgo his senior season at San Diego State. Or he may not. That's what Coach Steve Fisher insisted after CBSSports.com reported Wednesday afternoon that Franklin, according to sources, "is heading to the NBA." College underclassmen have until April 28 to declare for the June 27 draft. Fisher said neither he nor Franklin was contacted for the story. He also said it's not true. "I'm disappointed that people wouldn't be more respectful to call me or talk directly to Jamaal," Fisher said. "I have talked repeatedly with Jamaal over the past few weeks. We talked earlier today. I talked to him 20 minutes ago. And he hasn't made any decision."
