Tillie, Killian Gonzaga  6'10" 220 PF SR.  Tillie is a skilled, right handed forward from France. He can really shoot it from deep range, and he knows how to play. He averaged 13.6 points, 5 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game in 2019-20. In his four seasons at Gonzaga he connected on 44% of his three-point attempts. He improved as a decision maker during his college career, topping out with a 1.87-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio as a Senior. ...By NBA standards, he is a below average runner/jumper. He was injury riddled in the last two seasons, playing only 39 games from 2018 through the end of the shortened 2019-20 season. He missed games due to a hip pointer, sprained ankles, a preventative knee surgery, a partially torn ligament in his foot, and a stress fracture in his ankle. ...Tillie was a "plus defender" for the Zags, with the team being 0.7 points per 100 possessions better on defense with Tillie on the floor. Tillie was named First Team All West Coast Conference. He is second in career WCC boxscore plus/minus. We think Tillie will be picked late in the second round. If a team feels comfortable with him being healthy, he has a chance to deliver first round value in our opinion. 


Our best advice: in 2002, the 56th pick was Randy Holcomb. We advised, "draft Udonis Haslem."

Our most sketchy advice: in 2007, the 56th pick was Ramon Sessions. We advised, "draft Ali Traore."
