SADDIQ BEY, VILLANOVA
STATS: 16.1 PPG | 47.7 FG% | 45.1 3-PT%
The Celtics are only getting Bey if they hold onto the Memphis pick (17). Some drafts have him going a little bit sooner, but still just outside the lottery.
Brad Stevens will want him because he’s a 6-foot-8 wing — and Boston can never have too many wings. He’s also switchable on defense, though the 20-year-old needs to add strength if he hopes to battle more physical wings.
Of course, Bey’s 3-point percentage stands out. He can score off the dribble, but Bey is good off the ball — the latter being a characteristic that fits better in the Celtics offense, right now. He just can’t defer when he has open looks.
