And the bolded is exactly what keeps Pritchard's agent awake at night. One way for his client to get paid better than Forbes is to get PP onto a team where he can have a regular role and potentially put up POINTZ. And POINTZ can lead to $$$. The delta between Forbes and McConnell is life changing money for a player like Pritchard.TJ is a pass-first PG that excels at picking up full-court on-ball pressure. A very reluctant 3pt shooter whereas Payton launches immediately with any opening.
IMHO the player that PP most resembles is Bryn Forbes (6'2"), a small off-guard that shoots 3s at 41%. Bryn had a few decent seasons at SAS, and started for a playoff team but never got paid. His size has killed any shooting value he holds and he's bounced around the league for a few seasons now. Bryn topped out at $4M/yr
PP will struggle to get paid no matter where he ends up. Unless you're a lightning-quick PG, you need length/size in the switch everything NBA.
