Grayson Allen has a reputation.
This reputation is that of a dirty player.

Well, that reputation caught up with him on Thursday in a summer league game.
Allen hits Williams on the head with his elbow
The Memphis Grizzlies striker defended Grant Williams, the Boston Celtics forward, who was trying his luck.
Allen made a big move. He did not have the ball.
What he got was the back of Williams' head with his elbow.
What do I do?
Allen immediately took a look "what me?" To officials when the whistle sounded, to protest the fault.
It was in vain. The referees awarded Allen a blatant foul – his second of the game – and expelled him.
Even if the shot was not intentional, it's not a piece with which he will escape in the NBA.
