Killian Tillie 2020 NBA Draft and Projected Salary 

Ranked #52 by the CBS Sports in the upcoming 2020 NBA draft, Killian Tillie, is one of the intriguing players in the draft. If the power forward goes on to be selected in the upcoming draft as the #52 pick, he will be earning amounts ranging to millions in the future. 

His projected salary will resemble the last year's #52 prospect Jalen McDaniels who signed a four-year contract worth $6,129,593 with the Hornets. Assuming his salary, Tillie's projected figures will definitely be in millions.

Seasons  Projected Salary 
2020-21  $898,310
2021-22 $1,517,981
2021-22 $1,782,621

There is no denying that the Tillie will become a millionaire in the near future but the 22-years-old is still a college player and has not accumulated any earnings from his basketball profession yet since he has not turned professional. However, college players do tend to get incentives and grants from their college in return for their athletic capabilities. Since providing salary to the players is against the NCAA rules, the division I colleges provide grants in terms of scholarship, insurance, and other benefits which helps the players in staying focused.

To conclude, as the college players don't receive a particular salary, Tillie's net worth is yet to be determined and will be updated as soon as possible.
