    Default Tilli9e's draft number-you pick

    I going to say number 20th but then I am an optimist. Of course the owners do not have the luxury of my perspective.

    Nowhere near an "expert", but I would love it if the Mavericks picked him. Killian's a perfect fit as a sidekick to Luka. That would be with the 31st pick.

    The image I'm drawing from the coverage so far is "Covid? What Covid?"

    Opps, I missed. I guess there is a first time for everything. Zag players overperform when they are drafted. Robert Sacre 60th I believe and played for about 7 years. David Stockton undrafted played a few years. etc.

    Honestly, undrafted may be better than mid-late 2nd round. He can shop his skills around and pick a team that gives him the best chance to play and shine.

    Without all of those injuries, he's probably a mid-late 1st.

    Injuries and Age is working against him, if he can stay healthy he will be on an NBA roster next season though.

    Completely agree. If Klay Thompson is out with an Achilles injury, Golden State could use him.

    Surprised he went undrafted, curious to see where he ends up.

    Going undrafted can be better than being picked late second round. He will almost assuredly get a two way contract from someone. I’m sure the injuries are what held him from being drafted. I could see him fitting a lot of teams with his ability to stretch the floor from the front court. Perhaps the Lakers or Sixers could be fits.

    French F Killian Tillie of Gonzaga is signing a two-way deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, his agent Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tells ESPN.

    He’s signed a two way contract to play with Brandon Clarke in Memphis, if healthy I know he will make the roster.

    If Tillie stays healthy, he will be in the NBA for a long time. He is far more talented overall than Petrusev and his game fits the NBA. Great landing spot and love that he’s playing with Clarke

    That’s the issue. I have not nor have the scouts see him play a full year without injury. If he can do that. He’s a very valuable player(

    Happy for KT! Will be interesting to see how teams make roster decisions with no summer league before the season starts in December. Guess he will need to earn his spot by shining in practice and demonstrating he is healthy.

    Not one WCC player was drafted. Tillie was the most likely prospect, but Jordan Ford, Malik Fitts, TJ Haws, and Yoeli Childs were also under consideration. I suspect that Tillie and Ford will make NBA rosters before too long.

    I think Childs is a better bet than Ford to make an NBA roster at some point.

    The only NBA team I watched last season was Memphis last because of Clark. I like the young nucleus of their team. Now I have two Zags to watch!

    I couldn’t see Haws getting drafted as he must be in his late 30’s by now.

    Per Gaels board, it looks like both Ford & Fitts have signed 10 day contracts with the Clippers.
