According to ESPN senior NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, Boston Celtics guard Payton Pritchard
agreed to a four-year, $30 million (fully guaranteed) extension with the team. The 25-year-old played a career-low 13.4 minutes last season and expressed displeasure regarding his role. As a result, he sought a trade heading into the summer. However, with Grant Williams
, Malcolm Brogdon
, and Marcus Smart
no longer on the roster, Pritchard is anticipated to see routine playing time during the 2023-24 campaign. The 2020 No. 26 overall pick has averaged 6.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 40.0% shooting from deep since entering the league. Those numbers will likely increase, so managers should keep him in mind late in fantasy drafts.
