1) Chicago Bulls stretch big targets in 2020 draft: Killian Tillie

Last year, the Bulls got a gem find in the second round of the draft by picking the former Arkansas Razorbacks center Daniel Gafford 38th overall. Gafford had a solid rookie season, and might be the biggest second round steal out of last year’s draft as it stands now. But maybe the Bulls could go with a stretch big to be a nice complement to Gafford off the bench in the frontcourt rotation.

A really solid target that the Bulls could potentially look into with their 44th overall pick in the second round of the draft is the former Gonzaga Bulldogs 6-foot-10 and 220 pound power forward/center Killian Tillie. The one-time All-WCC product and former INSEP Academy High School standout played in more than 100 career games with Gonzaga.

During his senior season in the 2019-20 campaign with Gonzaga, Tillie played in 24 games (all of which he started in). He averaged 13.6 points per game, 5.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.8 blocks. And Tillie shot 53.5 percent from the field, 40.0 percent from beyond the arc, and 72.6 percent from the free-throw line.

Even though Tillie saw a slight decline in his shooting percentages in his final season with Gonzaga, he was still very solid and efficient across the board. He is a career 44.5 percent shooter from beyond the arc, 55 percent from the field, and has a career 64.3 true shooting percentage. Tilllie is a good option maybe in the second round if the Bulls want to fill the stretch big need.
