Alan would be foolish to go back to the Knicks. From the sound of it, they don't really want or need him. The only person on the Knicks who may want to see him back is Dolan, looking to get some of that $100 million back so he can pay AB.

It doesn't have anything to do with the salary cap. The cap number was set in July and stays the same throughout the season. The payroll number might change as players come and go, but the cap doesn't.
Besides, the Nets will be over the cap with or without Allan Houston.

If Alan wants to come back thats fine but the Knicks shouldn't entertanin the thought. Back in the day he was great. It's time to keep moving forward. Also gey rid of James. He has not mad any contribution to the improvement of the team. Then again we could let go of James and keep Alan.

The best roster cut for the Knicks would be Isiah Thomas

Yeah, and I guess the Knicks just signed Houston "out of respect". He has got more class than all of Madison Square Garden combined. Out of "Respect" Isiah should be more respectfull. Out of "Respect" Isiah should learn from Allen. Allen is only 36, not ancient, he has not been a drug user or a drinker, he is still in great shape and his knees are healed. I wrote about this a year ago, that he would be a Knick again, and a good one. Knicks still need the Shot Blocker I have been beckoning for. Isiah, are you listening? Randolf and Curry are just scorers, no defense. Get a guy who can swat and you got a chance at a title, this year. I still don't like the Frye trade, he had so much upside and was a great team player. Three cheers for signing Allen, we got some class and a guy who can make the nets sway.
