Report: Knicks could give Allan Houston front office promotion
The New York Knicks’ front office is going through some major changes right now, but one rare mainstay could be poised for a reward soon.
Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reported Tuesday that ex-Knicks star Allan Houston has emerged as a candidate for a front office promotion. The 48-year-old currently serves as general manager of the team’s G-League affiliate and previously was Knicks assistant GM. After nine seasons with the team as a player (netting two All-Star appearances and an NBA Finals berth in 1999), Houston has been a Knicks executive since 2008, surviving multiple regime changes along the way.
The Knicks recently fired team president Steve Mills after three years at the helm and are expected to hire former agent Leon Rose as his replacement.
Houston certainly has some clout within the organization, as it wasn’t too long ago that he won a power struggle of sorts against a potential GM candidate.
