Detroit Pistons trade for No. 19 pick, select Saddiq Bey

Just moments ago, the Detroit Pistons traded Luke Kennard the Los Angeles Clippers for the No. 19 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

With that pick, the Pistons have selected F Saddiq Bey out of Villanova.

From ESPN:

Strengths
– Versatile player with a solid physical profile at 6-foot-7, 216 pounds with a 6-foot-11 wingspan. One of the more efficient combo forwards in college basketball. Late bloomer who improved every season at Villanova.
– Competitive. Has the ability to defend multiple positions in a pinch. Makes winning plays. Good offensive rebounder. Has been both a role player and a featured starter. Likely NBA contributor from day one.
– Shot 45.1% from 3 on 6.7 attempts per game as a sophomore. Can handle in pick-and-roll, function as a screener or play out of the post. Solid feel for the game. Played some point guard for stretches.

Improvement areas
– Not a great athlete, given his dimensions. Doesn’t always finish above the rim in traffic.
– Low steal and block rates relative to his size and length. Can he be a true defensive stopper?
– How will his jumper translate to the NBA line? Unorthodox mechanics. Career 73% free throw shooter. Does a little of everything, but what’s his elite NBA skill?

Projected role: 3-and-D forward
