Saddiq Bey is an NBA player who plays for the Detroit Pistons. He was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is a 6’8” athlete who traditionally plays the small forward position.
Bey is an extremely talented forward who can mix things up with his on-court versatility. He can finish moves at the rim, and his three-point shooting adds to his impressive skill set. He shot 45.1% in 5.6 attempts per game from behind the arc in his sophomore year as a Wildcat.
Bey can also defend, and his two-way skills can never be overlooked. He is strong enough to block opponents from gaining points, and a relentless work ethic puts him above the rest.
Villanova coach Jay Wright had been scouting Bey since high-school and finally signed him to play for his team in 2018. Bey impressed with 16.0 points on his debut against Morgan State and set the tone with his performance.
Bey averaged 8.2 points and 5.1 rebounds a game in his freshman year, and Villanova won the Big East championship for the third straight time in 2019. His contributions in sophomore year earned Sadiq Bey a spot on first-team All-Big East. Furthermore, his averages of 16.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.4 assists secured him the Julius Erving Award in 2020 as the nation’s top small forward.
Bey was projected to be a late lottery pick but fell to 19th, where the Brooklyn Nets picked him up. But later they traded him to the Detroit Pistons in a three-team trade, where he teamed up with fellow rookies Killian Hayes and Isaiah Stewart.
Bey has featured in 25 out of their 27 games and has become an important part of their rotation. He has started eight games as well, averaging 9.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 0.9 assists. His breakout game came against the Celtics on February 12, when he scored 30 points and had 12 rebounds as well.
After being drafted out of the lottery, Saddiq Bey will earn just over $5 million from his rookie contract and could earn up to $13 million if the Pistons trigger his team option.
With little information available about his net worth, CelebsAgeWiki estimates it to be around $1 Million – $5 Million.
