Do you want to ask former Duke guard Grayson Allen anything? Here's your chance.
Allen, who is preparing for the upcoming NBA Draft on June 21, announced on Twitter that he's doing an ‘Ask Me Anything’ (AMA) segment on Reddit at 4 p.m. Thursday.
An AMA on Reddit is a forum to ask and answer questions about any topic.
Allen's upcoming AMA says: "Hi Reddit, Grayson Allen here. You probably know me best as a 4 year player, national champion, and graduate of Duke University, but I'm also a gamer, student, Christian, and a long time redditor. Some of my most frequented subs are r/todayilearned, r/Bible, r/meditation, r/suggestmeabook, r/nutrition, and r/westworld. Feel free to ask me anything about basketball, the NBA draft process, my favorite video games, my workout routines, diet, and anything in between."

Jahlil, Jayson, Harry and Marvin are all up there though."
