Trae Young, Grayson Allen Earn Technical Fouls After Brief Scuffle

SALT LAKE CITY — Atlanta Hawks rookie Trae Young and Utah Jazz rookie Grayson Allen got into a brief altercation Thursday in the final game of Utah Jazz Summer League.

The play occurred just after halftime during a Hawks offensive possession. After coming off a pindown, Young popped out to the top of the 3-point arc and caught a pass and was met by Allen. As Young rose to shoot, he and Allen hooked arms. The two guards remained engaged as Young tried to wrestle free, and the pair scuffled as Young’s right arm lowered onto Allen’s back. Allen retaliated by thrusting his head into Young’s chest.

Referees intervened as teammates of both players responded to the fracas. Allen and Young were each assessed a technical foul, and Allen also was charged with a personal foul.

“That’s not the first time Grayson has gotten tangled up with someone,” Young said after the game, “but it’s not the first time and last time I’m going to get tangled up with someone. It’s going to happen. This is the NBA. It’s going to be a physical game. Grayson is a physical player. I’m a physical player.”

Both players struggled from the field, with Allen shooting 2-for-13 and Young converting 3 of his 16.
