Saints Player No. 3: Taysom Hill — Celtics’ Payton Pritchard

Celtics’ Payton Pritchard steps onto the court, shoots a few threes, and sits back down.

Saints’ Taysom Hill steps onto the field, executes a trick play, and goes back to the bench.

Each player’s value lies in his efficient usage in any given game. The key word there is: Efficient.

Would Boston trust Pritchard to play more minutes in the lineup? Probably not, just as New Orleans wouldn’t trust Hill to play quarterback in 2022. Been there, done that.

On to the next one.
