The Westchester home of former N.B.A. star Allan Houston—complete with indoor basketball court and trophy room—is listing for $19.9 million. Measuring about 19,300 square feet, the house sits on more than 10 acres in Armonk, N.Y., in the exclusive gated community of Conyers Farm, according to real estate agent Brian Milton of Houlihan Lawrence, who is listing the property with colleague Ellen Mosher. The French Country-style estate has seven bedrooms, 10 full and two half bathrooms, Mr. Milton said.
The NBA Development League has added a team in the New York suburb of White Plains that will be owned and operated by the Knicks. The addition of the team brings the NBADL membership to 18 teams, seven of them owned and operated by an NBA franchise. Allan Houston, the Knicks’ assistant general manager, will serve as the new team’s GM. Houston calls the NBADL “thriving, and this opportunity allows us to develop players closer to our training facility, and to provide high level, affordable basketball entertainment to the community.” The team will conduct a fan vote to help choose the name of the new NBADL club. It will play 24 regular-season games at the County Center.
Who was the toughest player for you to guard during your career? DA: There was a couple. When I played it was tough. I was a tough guard but think about it, you had these shooting guards: Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller, Mitch Richmond, Latrell Sprewell, Allan Houston, Steve Smith, JR Rider… Just naming those guys, you knew you had a tough night every night and if you watched on TV you said ‘Man, this is a great game!’ Now you can’t name me five apart from Kobe [Bryant], [James] Harden and maybe Joe Johnson… It was fun back then. Mario Elie, Allen Iverson was a two-guard back then… There was a bunch of talent. Now? There’s nothing.

The Knicks fired GM Glen Grunwald last summer, never really explaining what he did to deserve being dismissed after building the team that had the franchise’s most successful season in 13 years. They brought back former MSG executive Steve Mills to replace Grunwald. Mills’ relationships with CAA, which represents Anthony, Woodson, assistant general managers Mark Warkentein and Allan Houston, are being counted on to deliver Anthony this summer and beyond.
About 90 minutes before tipoff Monday night at Madison Square Garden, Leon Rose met Knicks general manager Steve Mills on the court. The two men walked under the stands and disappeared. Thirty minutes later, Rose emerged and shook hands with Knicks executive Allan Houston. They strolled together through the tunnel leading toward the Knicks’ locker room. These meetings involving the highest levels of the Knicks’ brass and Carmelo Anthony’s agent came after two straight excruciating losses.

It would be hysterical to suggest that Rose wanted to approach Mills and Houston again after this latest debacle and request the same buyout treatment for his client. But it should be noted that Anthony, who has held his head high as this Knicks season has crumbled around him, openly wondered after the game if all of his efforts have been for naught. “You kind of ask yourself, ‘Is it worth it?'” Anthony said.

Houston’s name surfaced as a potential successor to Woodson around the same time last week that Kidd was removing Lawrence Frank from his bench and banning him from the practice gym. Houston is assistant GM to Steve Mills, and like Kidd, has no coaching experience. “When you see how Kidd has been a failure — his team shows no effort on a consistent basis — if Dolan would give the job to Houston, then New York fans would be in an uproar,” said one Eastern Conference team executive. “Allan Houston would be a disaster as a coach.”
