New York, NY (PRWEB) October 23, 2008
New York Knicks announced today that "starting immediately, there will be on-going discussions with Allan Houston about having a new role for him within the franchise, as 2008-2009 NBA Basketball Season Gets Underway."
An Open Letter from Allan Houston reads as follows:
"First and foremost, my family and I would like to thank Knicks President Donnie Walsh and Coach Mike D'Antoni for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of the New York Knicks organization again. These are two of the most knowledgeable and respected men in basketball and I look forward to learning more from them. Although I was very excited about potentially joining my NY Knicks teammates this year in uniform, I believe that the circumstances suggest that I am best suited to serve the team in a different role.
I realize that we often make our own plans in our heart, but God always has even bigger plans for us. I am extremely blessed to have witnessed a special era in New York Knicks history, and I know basketball fans everywhere, especially Knick fans, are ready for the return of this franchise and hopefully I will be able to serve a role in being a part of that again.
Secondly, I want to also sincerely and personally thank family, friends, fans, prayer partners for all of your overwhelming support. Through AllanHouston.com & the Allan Houston Legacy Foundation, we will stay connected to you and remain committed to equipping our next generation to live fruitful lives, making a difference and positively impacting the community for years to come," said Allan Houston.
