Ex-Jazz guard Grayson Allen recalls going from ‘shock’ at trade to Grizzlies, to ‘excitement’ for his new opportunity

Saturday night marked the third time in three weeks that the Jazz were going up against the Grizzlies, and so, by this occasion, the novelty of facing Jae Crowder and Grayson Allen — a pair of Jazz players a season ago — had worn off.

Still, with both of those prior matchups being played in Memphis, Saturday did mark the first time those players were back in Salt Lake City since being included in the trade that brought Mike Conley to Utah.

Allen said that since flying back into his first professional city on Thursday, it’s been a pretty low-key return.
