Saddiq Bey drawing interest

The third-year forward has had an up-and-down season and, with that, has been the subject of trade rumors as of late. The interest from rival teams, per league sources, intensified when Bey was moved to the bench in November. Teams have since kept tabs on his availability. Still, though, I’ve gotten the impression the Pistons aren’t ready to move on from the 23-year-old Bey unless a deal they can’t refuse comes around. What would such an offer entail? I’m not sure, but, per league sources, Detroit hasn’t made it seem like Bey is available for pennies.

End of 1: Knicks 39, Pistons 22. Detroit shots 7-21, Knicks shots 14-27. Pistons are definitely missing Bogey’s scoring and Duren’s size. Knicks already have seven offensive rebounds and an 18-9 advantage on the glass.

I’m not sure, but, for league sources, Detroit hasn’t made it seem like Bey is available for pennies. -Street The Athletic /January 16, 2023

Detroit Pistons PR: Saddiq Bey scored a season-high 31 points (10-16 FG, 4-6 3FG, 7-8 FT) tonight against Minnesota. It was his eighth career 30-point game and ties the fourth-best scoring performance of his career. pic.twitter.com/dpYvyQZ5Ry -go Twitter @Pistons_PR /January 12, 2023

I don’t think Alec Burks is going anywhere. I also don’t think Saddiq Bey does, though he may be more likely than the first two. Nerlens Noel is the only player I see getting traded, and that’s not even a guarantee. Teams may just wait to see if he gets bought out.” -Street The Athletic /January 11, 2023
