2020 NBA Draft prospect Saddiq Be could be the wing the New Orleans Pelicans need.
The New Orleans Pelicans have a lot of options in the 2020 NBA Draft, including wing prospect Saddiq Bey from Villanova.
Bey is a popular name for the New Orleans Pelicans in this NBA Draft, as he seemingly fits one of their biggest needs, which is to get some size and defense on the wing.
This draft is going to be one of the wildest in memory, as teams didn’t get to see much of these players and have had less time to scout them, which may lead to a record number of draft-day trades.
It could also lead to some of the best players in this draft being overlooked, undervalued and passed over, which could be a boon for the Pelicans, who have the 13th pick and are hoping some top talent falls.
One such talent could be Saddiq Bey, a 6-foot-8 wing out of Villanova who some are predicting will be the best player in the draft.
With wings more valued than ever, Bey may end up being drafted before the Pelicans get a shot at him, but if he falls, there is probably a fit.
Bey has a versatile game that appears tailor-made for the modern game, but he also has some flaws that could slow him down at the next level.
Let’s take a look at Saddiq Bey’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as how he might fit in the New Orleans Pelicans’ rotation in 2020 and beyond.
