Memphis, Tenn. – The Memphis Grizzlies today announced the team signed forward/center Killian Tillie to a two-way contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Tillie (6-10, 220), who has averaged 14.5 points in 22.4 minutes through Memphis’ first two games of MGM Resorts NBA Summer League 2021 in Las Vegas, appeared in 18 games (one start) as a rookie for the Grizzlies last season and averaged 3.2 points and 1.3 rebounds in 10.1 minutes.
