Utah Jazz select Grayson Allen with 21st pick

June 21, 2018 - 10:08 pm

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Utah Jazz selected Duke's Grayson Allen with the 21st overall pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night.

Allen, a 6-foot-5 guard, played in 142 games and made 97 starts in four seasons with the Blue Devils. He scored 1,996 career points, ranking 12th on Duke's career scoring list. The 22-year-old rookie is one of just five players in Duke history to tally at least 1,900 points, 400 rebounds and 400 assists during his career.

For the first time in three seasons, Utah did not participate in a draft day trade. The Jazz traded their original first-round selections in both 2016 and 2017.
