Summary:

Killian Tillie did not see much playing time last year, as he played on one of the best teams in college basketball, as his team lost in the 2017 National Championship game.

But NBA teams and scouts like his versatility and upside, as he could project into being an energetic big man that could score in a variety of ways, as well as provide plus-level rebounding and defensive skills.  Tillie is a skilled scorer that can get buckets in numerous ways, but he will need to be more consistent in games, but his offensive skills could allow him to be a second round pick in 2020.
