Pritchard, a long-term prospect who entered the NBA after completing four full years of college, was selected by Boston with the 26th overall pick in the first round of the 2020 draft.
He was born in 1998, making him older for his draft mates. He’s only been in college for one year, and most players come out, while Pritchard has been in college for so long.
As he entered the NBA late, he was desperate to play. In his debut season, he played 66 games in the 2020-2021 season, recording 7.7 points and 1.8 assists per game. His 3-point shooting percentage was 41.1%. Even in his sophomore season, he averaged 6.2 points, 2 assists and 41.2% 3-point shooting per game.
First-year coach Brad Stevens and second-year coach Eme Udoka both used him as a key resource. However, in his third year, new manager Joe Mazula didn’t use him at all. What happened when the Indiana Pacers’ ace guard Malcolm Brogdon was recruited to a solid guard lineup led by Marcus Smart and Derek White. He completely collapsed in his third year with 5.6 points, 1.3 assists and 36.4 percent 3-point shooting per game.
Pritchard can’t stand a chance in his current game. They have three top-notch ballhandlers, and ace resources Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown also have long ball possession times. Responsible for playmaking. Pritchard admitted he couldn’t play long in Boston, so he reportedly asked for a trade.
It is expected that there will definitely be teams looking for him in terms of his modest ransom and good efficiency. I wonder where his next destination will be.
