Video: Trae Young, Grayson Allen Involved In Altercation

Grayson Allen and Trae Young involved in altercation.

Two former college basketball stars are getting their first action of the summer league this week. Grayson Allen of the Utah Jazz and Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks were involved in an altercation in the third period of Thursday night's game.

Allen had already been called for a tripping foul earlier in the game. Then he got mixed up with a former Oklahoma Sooners star.

Trae Young held the ball outside the three-point line with Grayson Allen in defense. Allen stepped in to close the gap, and that's when things got hairy.

Young and Allen tied up before things escalated to the point where both players had to be separated. Check it out.

We shouldn't be surprised to see Grayson Allen getting mixed into a little drama. It's also not surprising to see Trae Young in the mix, given his recent shooting slump. Young is 1-0f-8 shooting tonight, so he's likely a bit frustrated.

Young has just three points on the night. However, Allen isn't doing much better. The former Duke star is also struggling from the field, at 1-of-9 for the night for just four points.

These two will likely see some more of each other in the future.
