Reputation for being a dirty player
Grayson Allen is a vastly athletic combo guard that has a lot of interesting physical tools. He shows promise as a player that could be a microwave type of scorer in the NBA, but he can still be too inconsistent at times.
His decision-making has not always been the best, but Allen can be a handful for the opposition when he is dialed in. He had had a relatively disappointing junior season as he struggled to find his jump shot, and he has gained a reputation for being a dirty player as he has tripped multiple players throughout his career, which could hamper his draft stock. But so far, he is off to a strong start this year as a senior. With his skill set, he could likely end up in the late first to second round range for the 2018 NBA Draft.
