Utah Jazz select Grayson Allen with 21st pick

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) A reputation as a dirty player followed Grayson Allen throughout his career at Duke. Allen is hoping he can carve out a new identity with the Utah Jazz.

Allen's goal after being selected by the Jazz with the 21st overall pick on Thursday night is simple. He aims to win over fans, coaches, and teammates with passion for the game. The newest Jazz rookie thinks he can accomplish this goal at a rapid pace.

"It's a lot different watching a guy play night in and night out and giving his all than it is to see the same three clips replayed for the last three years," Allen said.
