Killian Tillie is a good fit. 6-10 guy who can play three positions. I’ve been surprised at the way he moves defensively, too. Solid fit for the future.

More on this storyline

Adrian Wojnarowski: Tillie will move into roster spot for guard Sam Merrill, who’s undergoing a left ankle clean-up procedure that’s expected to sideline him 3-4 months, per sources. Grizzlies will waive Merrill with an ongoing roster crunch, but they’re fond of him and he’ll stay on their radar. -via Twitter @wojespn / January 1, 2022
