Former New York Knicks shooting guard Allan Houston is the front-runner to be the team's next general manager under team president Donnie Walsh, according to league sources.

Walsh would neither confirm nor deny Houston's status. "He is working with me to learn the position of GM, whether with the Knicks or elsewhere," Walsh said. "I feel Allan has the tools to be a great GM."

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.

Why do former players get to be GMs? How does that make ANY sense? How are they qualified? I'm sure he'll be fine, but why can't they hire someone with a business background and involved in the sport off the court? Coaches I understand. But GMs?

And yes I realize this is nothing new.
