Kerr, Warriors have shown interest in Villanova's Bey

The Warriors are doing their due diligence when it comes to the 2020 NBA Draft.

We know that Steve Kerr and Bob Myers are interested in adding a couple wings to the roster this offseason, and the Warriors have been connected to Deni Avdija, Tyrese Haliburton, Isaac Okoro and others so far during the process. But those aren't the only wings the Warriors are looking into.

Villanova guard/forward Sadiq Bey is among the top wings in the class and Kerr has checked in with Villanova head coach Jay Wright to get some intel on the versatile wing.

Bey would be a great fit for the Warriors. While No. 2 would be too high to select him, he'd be the ideal prospect to target in a trade down in the eight-to-11 range. 

The 21-year-old Bey is the prototypical wing for the modern NBA. He shot 45.1 percent from 3-point range last season and was the Wildcats' best defender, guarding one through four. He has the length, ability and agility to guard smaller, quicker guards and keep them from turning the corner. He also is great at navigating screens and making sure not to give open looks to shooters.

Bey might be one of the most underrated prospects in the class. In a group without a generational talent, Bey could become one of the most successful players in the class and is one who could make an instant impact right away.

 

The Warriors currently have Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins at the two and three, but are looking for more wings in order to better space the floor and be more versatile on the defensive end.

Bey is a high IQ player who is a great spot-up shooter (ranked in the 98th percentile per Synergy Sports) and has some playmaking ability as well.

If the Warriors can move down a handful of spots, Bey could be finding his way to the Bay.
