Allan Houston's plans at a second comeback attempt might happen again with the Knicks.

The 37-year-old former All-Star shooting guard has been working out and playing all summer and, according to multiple sources, Houston has spoken recently with Donnie Walsh about an invite to training camp later this month in Saratoga Springs.

A person close to Houston said he "looks at this as the last opportunity to give it an honest and fair shot." Houston retired on Oct. 17, 2005 after chronic knee troubles.

The Knicks have an interest in Houston - especially if he shows he can still shoot it like he used to - but Walsh is believed to have an interest in including Houston in something on the basketball operations side of the business if he isn't able to make the roster.

Houston started hinting at a comeback last year and the Knicks gave him an invite last fall. He arrived a week late because of the birth of his daughter, Jade, and didn't last more than a week of practices. He played sparingly in one preseason game before calling it quits, citing he was not physically ready to the rigors of the NBA game. But Houston continued to workout throughout the winter and played at the Nike Pro City league this summer.

If he comes back and has a PORTION of his talent before he got injured, he should do good. Shooters don't need a lot physically.

Good luck to him but he's pretty much finished at this point.

done....not now but 4-5 years ago he was already done after 2003...

hasn't played now for 3 years...its ridiculous if he expects to get a job in the NBA. I mean if you aren't good enaugh for the Suns bench, you aren't good enaugh for any bench in the NBA.

Oh no, not again. When these athletes try to come out of retirement I always wonder if they are out of cash. I mean he got a 100 million dollar contract gift wrapped to him by the Knicks, but you never know.
