Allan Houston Attempting NBA Comeback

Former Knicks guard Allan Houston said today he is planning a comeback to the NBA. Houston, one of the best outside shooters in Knicks history (1996-2005), was on hand as a guest speaker/coach at the 17th annual Gatorade Knicks Summer Basketball Camp held at Hunter College. After talking to 150 campers, ages 8-18, and teaching them about defensive positioning* and the importance of character on and off the court, Houston shared his thoughts on a return to the NBA.

"I am going to try and come back this year," Houston said, adding that his agent has been in contact with a couple teams in the league.

While Houston did not want to name those teams specifically, he said that after Labor Day he should have a better idea of potential landing spots.
