Every single sports writer called it the allan houston rule, because houston had been injured for several season, and was owed 40+ million dollars. So if the knicks had waived him, they would have saved 40 million dollars in luxury tax costs.
This was the no brainer of no brainers. They actually call this exception "the allan houston rule"...and yet isiah thomas was too incompetent to figure this out who he was supposed to waive...thomas kept houston on the team, waived jerome williams instead, and costed the knicks $30 million or so.
I guess he reads the sports columns like every other professional in sports.
