Grizzlies Trade Grayson Allen To Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to trade guard Sam Merrill and two future second-round picks to the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for guard/small forward Grayson Allen, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski

Allen became part of the massive trade package in 2019 between the Grizzlies and Jazz that sent point guard Mike Conley to play for Utah, while Grayson went to Memphis, met with an increased role in 2020-2021.

First drafted by the Utah Jazz in 2018, Grayson’s stock as a player has continued to climb its way to meet the hype generated from his four years at Duke. Grayson’s third year in the NBA saw career highs nearly across the board: most notably in minutes played (25.2) and points per game (10.6). Grayson’s value stems from his dependable shooting from beyond the arc (39.1%) and tenacity on the defensive end. 

Allen’s addition to the Bucks will help boost a championship backcourt that also welcomes George Hill, bringing in the veteran guard on a two-year deal after clearing waivers with the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Bucks are coming off a championship run in 2021 off the efforts of All-Star Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday and two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
