 Allan Houston is the front-runner for the team general manager position. Sources said both owner James Dolan and coach Mike D' Antoni are comfortable with Houston, who is currently listed as the team's special assistant to the president. Houston started working in the Knicks front office two years ago, and is now "expanding his role and preparing for an eventual future as a general manager." Donnie Walsh, the team president, has operated without a G.M. for the last two years. Houston has been involved with player development, college scouting, trade discussions, and free-agent recruitment efforts. Houston is the perfect choice for this job. He play for the Knicks and was well liked by the New York fans before his injury. Dolan kept Houston on and put him in the front office to honor his big contract. Isiah Thomas should stay in Florida with the sun and fun. Thomas screw the Knicks franchise and New York with players with big contracts and don't care attitude. Eddie Curry is one of Thomas main import that deliver here to New York City. Isiah Thomas screw up the CBA and the Knicks. Until Donnie Walsh came and turn things around for the best. Donnie Walsh has a good eye for talent. Allan Houston may be the new Donnie Walsh.
