Adequate rebounder
Decent defender
Solid athlete

Cons:

Summary:

Saddiq Bey is an athletic, skilled combo forward that has a variety of skills that could prove to be useful at the next level.  He can shoot and score the basketball, and he is an unselfish player that can rack up assists.  He may need to show that he can consistently lock down upper echelon players on the defensive end, but right now, Saddiq Bey could project to be a solid 3 and D player in the NBA, as he could be a good value pick in the mid first round for the 2020 draft.
