Contents High school career Allen dunking in the 2014 McDonald's All-American Game

In 2014, Allen was selected as a McDonald's All-American out of Providence School in Jacksonville, Florida, where he won a state championship the previous year.[2] He won the McDonald's All-American Slam Dunk Contest, jumping over future Duke teammate Jahlil Okafor.[3]

College career Coach K embraces Allen at the end of his final home game of his senior year at Duke University.

During Allen's freshman season at Duke, he averaged 4.4 points per game[4] and was named to the ACC all-academic team.[4]

Allen became a major contributor in the NCAA tournament. On April 7, 2015, he played in the championship game, scoring 16 points, including 8 straight.[5] After the game, commentators cited Allen as one of the main reasons for Duke's win.[6][7] Coach Mike Krzyzewski agreed, saying, "We were kind of dead in the water. We were nine points down and Grayson just put us on his back."[6]

During the 2015–16 season, Allen was one of the best offensive players in the ACC, averaging 21 points per game[8] and shooting 43% from three-point range. He played an average of 36.6 minutes per game and made 83.7% of his free throws. [9]

Entering his junior season, Allen was considered one of the top returning players in college basketball. He was named to the Associated Press preseason All-America team[10] and was the ACC media's pick as preseason ACC Player of the Year.[11]

During the 2016–2017 season, Allen averaged 14.5 points per game and shot 36.5% from three-point range. He played on average 29.6 minutes per game and was 81.1% from the free-throw line. [12].

Tripping incidents

Allen received national publicity for intentionally tripping Louisville's Raymond Spalding on February 8, 2016; an article asked if he was "the next hated white Duke player."[13] In the second game against Louisville that season, he exchanged elbows while scuffling for a ball on the ground[14] and later received a technical and ejection for yelling at a referee following his fifth foul on a charge call.[15] On Thursday, February 25, 2016, in the closing seconds of a 15-point win against FSU, Allen tripped FSU's Xavier Rathan-Mayes.[16] A day later, Allen received a reprimand from the ACC for his second tripping incident in less than a month.

Prior to the start of his junior season, Allen stated that he was ready to put the tripping incidents behind him.[17] He then tripped Elon's Steven Santa Ana during their December 21 game. Allen was charged with a technical on the play.[18][19] The next day, Coach Krzyzewski suspended Allen from the team indefinitely and subsequently stripped him of his team captaincy after Duke's game on December 31.[20][21] Allen returned to play on January 4, 2017, after being suspended for one game.[22]

On March 9, 2018, Allen was assessed a flagrant foul 1 in the ACC tournament for tripping North Carolina's Garrison Brooks with what was called a "hip check."[23]

Professional career Utah Jazz (2018–present)

On June 21, 2018, Allen was selected with the 21st overall pick by the Utah Jazz in the 2018 NBA draft. On July 2nd Allen signed his rookie scale contract with the Jazz. [24] He has been compared to Bob Sura.
