"Everyone has respect for one of the great coaches," Houston said Monday morning at a press conference to announce the Knicks' new D-League team in White Plains beginning next season. "I've played and worked with a lot of great people, personnel and coaches. I'm a sponge. So anybody that I work with, anybody, I'm gonna learn from." New York Daily News

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. USA Today Sports

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. HoopsHype

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.

But Allan Houston, supposedly the GM in training, looms as a potential successor. The word around Knicks camp is that Dolan wouldn’t hesitate to promote him to head coach if the Knicks don’t turn things around sooner than later. Houston’s $100 million contract placed the Knicks in salary cap purgatory for years. Maybe having to coach this Knicks team would be his payback. New York Daily News
