He had to deal with an injury last season (on and off). But has an interesting package similar to KAT.  Downsides are still could add more mass and play less passive on offense.  But has a good motor.

Could see the Celts targetting a big like this with the Memphis pick (7-10 range)

Wowzer. TP for most random topic in July.

2 things, isn't this dude a second rounder, and isn't he basically Kelly O without the ball handling?

Yes and no

They share some similarities

But Tillie has a better frame, wingspan and better athleticism/leaping ability

He was pretty widely respected before his injury. If not for that injury, Brandon Clarke would have been Gonzaga’s number 3 option at best and he would have been the one drafted in the 2nd round.

LOL

In this scene you posted, he gets a running start and barely clears a few inches off the floor.  And then of course after the sequence, has to fall to the ground.

2020 has a ton of guards prospects in the 1st round.  Tillie is one of the few promising big players that could be available with the Memphis pick
