Allan Houston Looking to Make Return with Phoenix Suns

Remember Allan Houston? The former sharpshooter turns 37 in just over two weeks and has played only one game — a six-minute stint with the Knicks at the beginning of this season — since retiring in 2005 because of chronic knee problems.

Houston is in the Valley to visit friend Grant Hill. But while he’s here, he also asked to be evaluated by the Suns medical staff — or as they are fast becoming known around the NBA, “The Fountain of Youth.” Hill and Shaquille O’Neal are the latest players to have their careers resurrected or improved by Aaron Nelson and his team, and the success stories have naturally drawn the attention of players who had careers cut short by injury.
