Decent defender that can get steals
Above average athlete

Cons:

Inconsistent shooter

Not an especially dynamic playmaker

Summary:

Payton Pritchard is a tough, gritty playmaker that plays with a lot of poise and tenacity when he is out on the floor.  He can make tough shots, and he does a good job of providing a steady hand at the point to help get his team wins.

Though he doesn’t possess great physical tools and sometimes can struggle with his jump shot and position defense, Pritchard is a smart, heady point guard that may have the skills to make it as a backup point guard in the NBA.
