Erie BayHawks general manager of basketball operations, Allan Houston, did an interview at halftime of Erie’s 111-88 loss to Austin in the second day of the D-League Showcase in Reno earlier today.
NBATV interviewed Houston, who is also an assistant general manager of the New York Knicks. The Knicks and BayHawks are hybrid partners.
Houston talked about trying to balance his two jobs, the addition of Mike James to the BayHawks and the Knicks.
How do you balance the two and how much time do you dedicate to each one of them? “It’s fun, but it’s a balance. I try to be around the Knicks as much as possible. Be around our team and try to keep understanding the dynamics of the coaching staff and what’s going on, but this is fun because you get to see a lot of players and be familiar with a lot of the players, especially the great talent pool that’s come in so far (to the D-League Showcase). I think the Showcase is great because you see everybody at one time. In a shortened season, it is tough, but you get it done.”
