Carmelo billboard in Houston crastes stir with former teammate

Published Add your comment

In case you'd been living under a rock, or too immersed in the World Cup, NBA free agency is under way, and at the top of the heap, all of the top stars from the lauded 2003 NBA draft have a chance at finding new addresses.  

Of course the most likely of this group to find a new P.O. Box is Carmelo Anthony who continued his free agent tour.

After stopping in Chicago to meet with the Bulls, the former NB scoring champ is in the Lone Star State to meet with the Rockets and the Dallas Mavericks.

During what was described as a 'successful' visit with Houston, Melo got to see just what he might look like wearing number seven for the Rockets.

Just one problem, Jeremy Lin already wears that jersey for the Rockets.

And Lin, who took to twitter, was not pleased.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Luke 6:29 - If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them</p>&mdash; Jeremy Lin (@JLin7) <a href="">July 2, 2014</a></blockquote>

>>If its the Rockets or Bulls, where should Melo go?

The Tour Continues

Now Anthony will turn his sights to Big D, where he will meet with Mark Cuban, Rick Carslile, and the Mavericks brass about teaming up with Dirk Nowitzki, and and a former teammate from New York.

After the stop in Dallas though, Melo, reportedly will meet with the Lakers in Los Angeles. 

He's taking his time to decide, and while he's publicly stated his desire to compete for championships, the Knicks still have the financial advantage, with the ability to offer a max contract of five years and nearly $130 million.
