    Thank u 'Native! I love following this stuff over the Summer.

    Didn't realize Killian was U-20. A young Junior.

    Heck, I was 21 before my Junior yr at Gonzaga, and same with many of my friends.

    It will help Killian to be 20, at most 21 by next year's NBA Draft.

    For whatever reason, "22" is actually pointed out as an age by scouts under 'weaknesses'.

    You see it mentioned quite often, "will be 22 year old Senior", etc

    The NBA draft is on June 21, so I'd expect to see invites announced sometime soon after that. Dates for summer leagues:

    7/2 - 7/5 - Utah and Sacramento
    7/6 - 7/16 - Las Vegas

    Has he been cleared to play? I thought he was going to be rehabbing his hip for a while yet.

    Tillie was out for 3 wks following Sweet 16. Resting his hip.

    He's been playing again since end of April.

    Not sure if fully cleared but definitely back on the court the past month or more.
