LAS VEGAS, Nev. – In NBA Summer League action on Thursday night, former Jazzman Grayson Allen was ejected on two separate flagrant fouls in the Memphis Grizzlies loss to the Boston Celtics.
The two plays happened back-to-back on the defensive end with the first coming after Allen shoved Celtics first round pick Grant Williams.

After the flagrant foul free throws were taken, Allen was helping defensively in the paint when Williams went back door. As Allen recovered to Williams, he swung his arm viciously towards Williams head and slightly hit the Celtics rookie. Allen did not have any attempt at the ball.

The officials called a second flagrant foul on Allen and he was ejected from the Summer League game.
Allen was only playing in his second summer league game after the trade from the Utah Jazz became official.
He was dealt to Memphis with Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver and two first round draft picks in exchange for Mike Conley.
During his rookie season with the Jazz, he averaged 5.6 points per game.
