Killian Tillie

There is no question about Killian Tillie of Gonzaga’s skill level – unquestionably, he’s extremely talented. However, Tillie suffered a partially torn ligament in his foot during the 2018-19 season, which hampered his abilities somewhat.

In his freshman and sophomore seasons, however, Tillie proved himself to be among the best shooters in NCAA men’s basketball by producing a 47.9 percent clip from deep on a higher than 60 percent three-point attempt rate per College Basketball Reference.

Though his numbers dipped slightly in his junior year, Tillie still put forth a career-high 45.7 percent three-point attempt rate and shot 43.8 percent (on only 32 total attempts).

Tillie was an offensive dynamo when he was fully healthy in his sophomore season of 2017-18, so the Atlanta Hawks should be willing to take a swing in the second round if he falls that far due to lingering injury concerns.

Born in Paris, France, Tillie would bring a proven winning pedigree due to his time with the omnipresent West Coast Conference champion Gonzaga Bulldogs, and he would likely bring yet another good locker room presence to a young team looking to bolster its depth organically through the draft.
