“Payton Pritchard probably isn’t going to be a star,” suggests Bailey. “Because he’s undersized (6’1″ with a 6’4.5″ wingspan), he may never be a plus defender, either.”
“But there’s plenty of value in what he does. During his two NBA seasons, Pritchard has a top-40 assist-to-turnover percentage (among players with at least 100 assists) and is tied for 11th in 3-point percentage (among players with at least as many attempts as him).”
“Having a reliable creator who can run the second unit is important, but Pritchard brings the added bonus of being able to space the floor when sharing it with ball-handling starters,” adds the B/R analyst.
