Saddiq Bey will remain in the 2020 NBA Draft and sign with Excel Sports Management.
Executives and scouts see Bey's potential as a 3-and-D player in the pros. Bey is currently the No. 18 ranked prospect in the draft.
"This has been a pivotal time in our country and honestly not how I imagined the last few months playing out," Bey told ESPN in a statement. "Between the pandemic and national outcry against racial injustice, it has given me a lot of time to think and gain perspective outside of basketball. I have thought a lot about my decision to enter the NBA draft and specifically how that would impact my teammates, coaching staff, and the pursuit of my degree.
"I am forever grateful to Villanova University."
