Utah Jazz guard Grayson Allen, who was drafted with the 21st overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft, was sent down to the G-League team earlier this week. The former Duke star wasn’t getting much playing time with the NBA team and they want to get him some floor time.

In his G-League debut, Allen proved he could still ball and dropped a game high 26 points on 9 of 17 shooting. No word on whether or not he had any trips.
Hopefully Allen’s career doesn’t take the Jimmer Fredette route. We need him on an NBA floor tripping and elbowing the rest of the players on the court.
