SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Ongoing roster turnover from one season to the next forced Grayson Allen to become a basketball chameleon at Duke. He adapted to changes as they occurred and took on a new role each season.

Those experiences helped Allen get ready for whatever role is required of him as he embarks on his rookie season with the Utah Jazz.

"I've never been just a single focal point of an offense since I've been in college," Allen said during his introductory news conference Wednesday. "I know how to play with other talented guys. I know how to play with other really good guys and that's what you're going to have to do in the NBA, especially coming in as a rookie and coming into a team who's already a playoff team."
