Pick Analysis. SF, Villanova. player. 93. Scouting Report. Philadelphia 76ers (via Thunder). Saddiq Bey. 23

Bey stays in the Philly area to join the Sixers, who are among the deepest teams in the league. Despite, Bey should be able to slide into a role right off the bat, especially if most of his 46 percent clip from three this season follows him the league.

The Villanova sophomore has been fantastic from long range, and making nearly half of his 5.6 threes per game has to have modern GM’s paying attention. The Sixers make just over 10 threes again this season, ranking in the bottom third of the league there. Bey would instantly be their best perimeter scorer.

There are concerns that his game is one-dimensional, and that would be able to add much outside of his killer three-point shot. He’s not incredibly gifted athletically nor great with the ball in his hand.

At the 23rd pick however, teams are rarely going to find an all-around stud, and he could very well be worth the pick for his long-range sniping alone.

It’s also worth noting that this pick is protected 1-20, and if the Thunder have a bit of a rough end to the season, could very well not transfer to Philly.
