Milwaukee Bucks Small Forward: Saddiq Bey

Like MarJon Beauchamp, Saddiq Bey is another young, potential-filled wing who could be a quality contributor wherever he plays down the line. As management crafts the very next iteration of the Milwaukee Bucks in the coming years, they’ll likely look to get younger, and Bey could become an incredibly interesting option to man the small forward position long-term.

Bey, a 6-foot-7 wing, has shown a great knack for being able to score the ball throughout his three NBA seasons thus far. In that time with the Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks, the small forward has put up 14.1 points while shooting 36.1 percent from three on 6.5 attempts per game. Getting a big wing who can score and shoot would undeniably be a nice addition.

Five years from now, Bey will be 29, meaning he’ll be right in the thick of his prime. By then, Bey’s production could be much more well-rounded. It would not be surprising if he became a consistent 15+ point per game scorer from here on out. If Bey’s name starts floating around in rumors at any point in the coming years, the Milwaukee Bucks should pounce on the small forward.
