Trae Young, Grayson Allen get into scuffle during Summer League


Allen and fellow rookie Trae Young were involved in a minor wrestling match Thursday night during a game between Utah and Atlanta in the finale of the Jazz's summer league series in Salt Lake City.

But Allen, the first round draft pick of the Utah Jazz, is now 2-for-2 with getting into skirmishes in his first two summer league games. He got close to defend the former Oklahoma Sooners star, before Young deployed a ball fake. On the way back up, hands aloft as if he were trying to end the play, Allen appeared to give Young a slight shoulder check. It seemed that Allen, intentionally or not, got his arms entangled with Young, who was attempting a shot. Allen retaliated by thrusting his head into Young's chest. Allen then put his hands up in the air, making his case and pleading innocence to the nearby referee.

The rookie guards each earned a technical foul for roughhousing in the second half of Hawks vs. Allen was also given a personal foul.

Knox came out on a tear against the Atlanta Hawks in Las Vegas, scoring seven points in the first six minutes before tallying 22 points and eight rebounds while racking up some highlight-reel dunks. Allen's reputation, first established at Duke, makes it hard to believe he was completely innocent in inciting this act.
