Celtics’ Payton Pritchard puts in work in pro runs in the 2023 NBA offseason

Always looking to get on the court, Boston Celtics reserve point guard Payton Pritchard has spent time during the NBA’s 2023 offseason participating in pro runs.

The West Linn native turned up in a clip put together by NBA trainer Jordan Lawley that features Pritchard’s handling of the ball, crisp crossovers, his improved defensive game and his ability to play off teammates.

The extra on-court work should pay off for the former Oregon standout who will almost certainly see a major uptick in minutes with the Celtics this season. The Celtics sent out veteran point guard Marcus Smart in the deal that brought Kristaps Porzingis to Boston.

To hear more about the clip and what we can glean from it for the Celtics’ 2023-24 season and Pritchard’s role in it, check out the clip embedded below from the hosts of the CLNS Media “How Bout Them Celtics!” podcast.
