Tilmon played forward during his time at Missouri. He averaged 12.4 points with 7.9 rebounds during his senior season. He also averaged at least five rebounds every season he spent with the Tigers as well. Tilmon attended the University of Missouri from 2017 to 2021.
According to The Athletic’s Josh Robbins, this will most likely be a G-league move to the Lakeland Magic.
The Magic have waived Jon Teske and have signed free agent Jeremiah Tilmon. These moves are about the G League affiliate in Lakeland, with both players expected to wind up with Lakeland.
