Payton Pritchard could have a promise for the first round

Oregon security guard Payton Pritchard will enter the NBA draft on Nov. 18, which is predicted by most to be the second-round pick. However, Pac-12 Player of the Year could hear his name come out in the first round, according to Bleacher’s Jonathan Wasserman report.

Pritchard had a strong performance during the pre-draft process and apparently has teams considering adding him earlier than expected. According to the report, there are even “whispers” about a possible first-round promise to Pritchard.

Point guard Payton Pritchard has fans in the NBA front offices, and some may be willing to use a selection from the first round to get him. A league source told Bleacher Report there were whispers about a possible promise to Pritchard.

The 22-year-old scored an average of 20.5 points, 5.5 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals as a senior last season. He shot 46.8% from the field, 41.5% of which from the 3-point range with 6.8 attempts per game. He’s proven himself a winner up to this point in his career, and that probably appeals to teams around the NBA.

Teams looking to take on Pritchard in the first round may think he’s ready to contribute now, and that could make him a viable option from the bank. He has the skills meant to be translated to the next level and that could be fascinating enough for a team to put him in the first round.
