Rookie Xavier Tillman will sign a four-year deal with the Grizzlies.
The Grizzlies traded up in the draft to select Tillman at 35 and his stat set suggests he may be in play for fantasy one day with 13.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.2 steals, 2.1 blocks and 0.4 triples in his junior season at Michigan State. The Grizzlies frontcourt is crowded so Tillman may not find enough minutes to be relevant in year one however. With Jaren Jackson set to miss the beginning of the season, Brandon Clarke should slide into the starting lineup with Mario Hezonja and Tillman competing for the backup power forward minutes. Tillman may also see some time at center with his 6'8", 245-pound frame.
