NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
|POSITION: SF||FROM: Villanova||HT: 6-8||WT: 216|
|BORN: 4/9/99||YEAR: So.||WING: NA||REACH: NA|
Bey had a breakout sophomore season, showing off his elite shooting ability and heady all around game. He’s now looking like a possible first round pick in the 2020 draft.
Bey has nice size for the SF position and a strong build. He’s not an elite run/jump athlete but can hold is own, and shows quick hands on D and a solid understanding of the game, gaining position and seeming to read the play before it happens. His foot-speed and lateral quickness is a bit lacking and could get exposed at the next level. But he thinks the game at a high level, making up for some of his lack of quickness.
Bey does his best work catching and shooting or using the dribble to create space for his shot. He’s not the most adept at scoring in the lane, where his lack of burst limits his production.
He does a great job of moving the basketball and seems to always be thinking one step ahead of the play. The ball doesn’t stick in his hands.
He projects as a floor spacing, 3pt specialist and secondary scoring option at the next level.
