Sadiq Bay maintains a stable three-pointer. What is rare is that he can make stable shots in all areas of the three-pointer. There is no particularly weak area, unlike some shooters who only like to shoot in the sweet spot. The problem is, as a 203cm swingman, he has a poor shooting percentage at the basket. He can’t get close to the frame, mid-range, or rush to the frame. He has to learn how to fight against his defender.
