Xavier Tillman Rumors

The new reality we are all living has made the draft process considerably different than in past years. Since face-to-face meetings canโ€™t happen right now, Tillman has been meeting with NBA teams through Zoom meetings. โ€œIโ€™ve had two so far with Utah and Detroit. Itโ€™s all about these Zoom interviews and how well you perform in those. Answering the questions honestly is the biggest key for those teams because they know everything about you,โ€ Tillman said. Being born and raised in Michigan, Tillman says the Pistons are a team that is on his list.
For his basketball future, Xavier Tillman admits he’s not sure what his next move is going to be. While he’d love to come back for his senior season at MSU, he says leaving early for the NBA is still an option. If his time at Michigan State is over, he knows his college career wouldn’t end of a high note. However, he says that does not affect his final decision. “It doesn’t play a factor in it, I would say for me personally because I feel like I played well enough this year to see if I could test the waters to see if I could make it,” Tillman said.
Michigan State forward Xavier Tillman will not test the NBA draft waters and return to Michigan State next year, while two of his teammates still have decisions to make about their future. In the postgame locker room after Michigan Stateโ€™s 61-51 loss to Texas Tech, Tillman said definitively that he will return to East Lansing for his junior season in 2019-20. “I’ll be here, yeah. I’m here, I’m here,” Tillman said.
