Saddiq Bey Draft Profile

Saddiq Bey – G/F – Villanova

Pros: 

  • Excellent three point shooter. Has a quick trigger, good footwork. Shoots 45% from deep
  • Awesome perimeter defender; he willingly guarded the best players in college. Very disciplined, scrappy, and has good length
  • Solid and willing passer
  • Excellent motor and always plays hard on both ends of the court
  • Extremely versatile player who knows his role and can fit into any system seamlessly

Cons:

  • Lacks burst and bounce off the dribble. He isn’t a great finisher even when he gets all the way to the hoop
  • Doesn’t have an extremely tight handle which makes it difficult for him to create his own offense. He also can’t create space consistently
  • I don’t believe he has star potential; his lack of assertiveness offensively and his inability to consistently create holds him back. However, he can be a tremendous asset regardless

Prospect Overview

Saddiq Bey has been a guy that I’ve gone back and forth about, but I think he’s a great player. He won’t be a star in the league, but I believe he has all the right tools to be one of the best role players. He’s a tremendous three point shooter off the catch and he moves extremely well without the ball. He’s a solid passer and rebounder for his size, though he’s not elite in either category. On defense, he’s everything you could want and more. He can defend the perimeter, guard bigger wings, block shots, play good help defense, he doesn’t gamble, etc. He’s going to be a player that you can stick onto the other team’s best perimeter scorer. He doesn’t have star talent but if you’re looking for a tremendous role player that does all the little things and will help you compete right now, Bey is the perfect fit for your team.
