The New York Knicks could promote Allan Houston to head coach if the team is not able to turn the season around under Mike Woodson, according to a report.

George Karl went on record recently saying he would not want to join the Knicks' "hell for a million dollars."

“Say what you want about Jim Dolan but he’s one of about eight owners who is willing to spend money to compete for a championship,” said one current NBA head coach. “There are too many owners who are only in it to make money.”

Houston is currently an executive under Steve Mills, who returned to the Knicks -- replacing Glen Grunwald -- before the start of training camp.
