Saddiq Bey Seeking ‘DeAndre Hunter Type Contract’ In Offseason

  • February 25, 2023

The Detroit Pistons preemptively traded Saddiq Bey to the Atlanta Hawks before he became a restricted free agent this offseason. Detroit took a flier on James Wiseman despite the presence of multiple young bigs on their roster in Jalen Duren, Marvin Bagley and Isaiah Stewart instead of contending with a contract situation with Bey.

“I had heard he was asking for insane money this upcoming summer,” said Jonathan Givony of ESPN. “That the feeling was he would need a DeAndre Hunter type contract in order to keep him. So if that’s the case, to me he’s closer to a midlevel guy than $20+ million per year.”

Hunter signed a four-year, $95 million extension with the Hawks before the start of the current season.

Bey shares an agent with former teammate Cade Cunningham in James Dunleavy.
