The Celtics exercised Pritchard's $2.24 million team option for 2022-23 on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

After getting off to a hot start to his NBA career last season, Pritchard's productivity took a hit over the final few months of the campaign, but his stellar 58.2 true-shooting percentage made it an easy decision for the Celtics to keep him on board through 2022-23. Though Boston has lost Kemba Walker from last season's roster, the additions of Dennis Schroder and Josh Richardson have resulted in Pritchard losing out on some playing time in the early stages of 2021-22. He's averaging 15.0 minutes per game through five appearances, down from 19.2 as a rookie.
