(DETROIT) – Sources say the Detroit Pistons have reportedly been taking calls about forward Saddiq Bey prior to the NBA trade deadline. Those same sources say the Pistons are also going to continue evaluating Bey before making any moves concerning the player. Bey is averaging 14.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists through 17 games so far this season. That’s a decline from his numbers in 2021-2022 when he averaged 16. points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists. The 23 year old has still showcased his upside during the season, reaching 20 points in five of his 17 games. He scored 28 in an October win over the Golden State Warriors. Consistency has been an issue, however, averaging just nine points over his last five games while shooting 31.4 percent from the field. The former Villanova star is eligible for an extension this offseason, which could force the Pistons to make a decision about his future. Detroit remains far from contention after a 4-15 start to the season. The team has to determine if Bey will be part of the core going forward, or else he could be moved ahead of the trade deadline.
