NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
|POSITION: PG||FROM: Ulm, BBL|
|HT: 6-5||WT: 215|
|BORN: 7/27/01||YEAR: 01||WING: 6-7||REACH: NA|
A big, athletic point guard who was born in Florida, grew up in France and has been playing in Germany. Now the 6-5 lefty projects as a possible lottery pick with some scouts seeing him as a top 3 pick.
Killian fits the mold of a modern point guard who can not only run the pick and roll and make all the passes but he can get his own shot off the dribble and is becoming a threat from 3pt land.
Expect to see Killian come off the board in the mid to late lottery.
- Has a solid NBA body with good size for the PG position
- A terrific ball-handler who pushes the pace and has a lot of moves and creativity
- He’s not the most explosive athlete in the world but has a knack for getting defenders off balance, which allows him to get to the rim or create space for his shot.
- Has a good, wide crossover dribble and a lot of shake n bake
- Has good burst and suddenness and changes speeds well
- A good set-up man with court vision and a willingness to find the open man
- Can make the one-handed pass off a live dribble and knows how to draw the help defender and create space for teammates
- Knows how to get his shot and also how to draw fouls – a terrific FT shooter, which bodes well for the development of his 3pt shot
- Gives good effort on defense and can really get after the ball-handler
- Has a solid frame for a young guard and can score through contact
- Doesn’t yet have a great outside shot and has somewhat of a funky release on his J.
- Needs to improve his right hand dribble, drive and passing.
- Doesn’t have elite burst or above the rim ability.
- Like all young players he needs to develop his understanding of the game, get stronger, improve his jumper… the usual developmental things
- bigger Jay Williams
