Franklin, a 6-foot-5 guard, led the Aztecs to three Mountain West titles and three consecutive NCAA appearances. He averaged 17 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.3 assists and 1.6 steals. He was the only player in the NCAA to lead his team in all four categories. He scored in double figures in 31 of San Diego State's 33 games last season.
The Grizzlies ended their coaching search earlier Thursday, introducing Dave Joerger as the team's new bench leader. Joerger was an assistant for Lionel Hollins, whose contract was not renewed after leading Memphis to a franchise-best 56 wins and a berth in the Western Conference finals.
