Michigan hoops could either be losing or retaining a player today, depending on who you ask. Jeff Goodman of ESPN says his sources are telling him  Nik Stauskas will enter the NBA draft.

This is according to a source close to the situation, he says. It doesn’t look like his source is actually Nik Stauskas though.

Stauskas took to Twitter moments after the Goodman tweet to say it just isn’t true.

So, who’s right?

In my 10 years working in sports radio I have seen this situation more than once. Most of the time when a reporter says a kid is going pro before the actual kid does, the kid wants to reveal it himself and will deny it. On the other hand, I have seen situations where the reporter is flat out wrong.

Michigan will also have decisions made by Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary in the near future on whether or not they will enter the NBA Draft.

Stauskas averaged 17.5 points and was also named the Big Ten player of the year.

Do you believe the report that Stauskas is going pro?
