Wade Baldwin ejected after hitting Grayson Allen in face

Watch Grayson Allen, Trae Young Get Into Scuffle During Summer League Game

Still, the Utah Jazz looked past all that and took Allen with the 21st pick of last month's National Basketball Association draft, and he's now getting his professional feet wet in the NBA's summer league for rookies, younger players and other hopefuls.

At this juncture, the Hawks brass, led by GM Travis Schlenk and Head Coach Lloyd Pierce, who is coaching the team with a glint in his eye, should be looking to develop talent and gauge the skill level of the players they selected. Young then picked up his dribble and bodied up Allen.

Through the first few days of Summer League action, passion and competitive fire are about all Allen or Young have to show for themselves.

Referees intervened as teammates of both players responded to the fracas.

Allen and Young were both called for technical fouls after almost fighting each other in the first half of the exhibition game. Allen and Young were each assessed a technical foul, and Allen also was charged with a personal foul. As Trae motioned to shoot, both players locked arms with Grayson effectively choosing to pull his man down. At the three-point line, Young and Allen got tangled and there was some pushing. "I'm a physical player".
