The Detroit pistons All three teams have selected Sadiq Bay as the 19th overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft as part of the trade. Los Angeles Clippers And Brooklyn nets. Bay is the latest in a long line of Villanova wings that have successfully advanced to the NBA. Josh Hart, Donde Divinchenso And Michael Bridges All have prospered as professionals, and now, Bay will get his own chance to prove he belongs with the pros.
Bay, like his Villanova predecessors, fits the 3-and-D type required by every NBA team. Bay shot an incredible 45.1 percent from behind the curve in 5.6 attempts last season. That improvement was absolute compared to his new season, in which he made only 37.4 percent of his attempts and shot the lowest 64.4 percent in the free-throw line. His long shooting movement may be unusual, but it is difficult to argue with the results. With 6-10 wings at 6-10, his body dimensions are suitable for modern defense. Villanova Wildcat Bay is the third Villanova to win the Julius Irving Award as the nation’s first pioneer in four years, following Hart and Bridge. His production speaks for itself at both ends.
But questions remain about how much room the bay should grow. He is not an elite athlete and his delivery is desirable. Teams always need 3-and-D opportunities, but ideally, those players can deliver a little more to other areas on the ground. It is not clear if Pei can do that, and if he wants to be more than a role player in the NBA it will be very important to develop a more well-rounded game.
With this move the pistons have moved towards everyone in the youth movement. Between Bay, Isaiah Stewart and Gillian Hayes, the Pistons have three first-rounders next season. Since Kennard was gone, the pistons needed another section. Considering the limitations of Michelio, it should be one that can be defended. Bailey, they found that player.
