Earlier today, two-time All-Star shooting guard Allan Houston signed with his old team, the New York Knicks, at the age of 37, and will attempt to make one more go at revitalizing his NBA career.
He played in one exhibition game with the team last year before calling it quits, but he hasn't played in a regular-season NBA game since 2005.
Houston is fourth on the Knicks' all-time scoring list behind only Hall-of-Famers Patrick Ewing, Walt Frazier and Willis Reed. Instead of wearing #20, he'll wear #14 this time around to honor his father, who wore that number at the University of Louisville.
Anyone think his knees are up to it?
"If I let myself get hung up on doing things that had any actual chance of success, I'd never do anything!"
I'm not even certain that Stackhouse will stay. It wouldn't surprise me, for cap reasons, if he were sent on to the Lakers for Shaq. I would presume that this will get done, if it's going to happen, before the draft. But who knows at this point.
