The Houston Rockets are going all out for superstar free agent Carmelo Anthony.

In advance of the two sides meeting this week, the Rockets posted a billboard outside the Toyota Center featuring Anthony wearing a No. 7 Rockets jersey, the same jersey number worn by current Rockets guard Jeremy Lin.

Upon learning of the situation, Lin took to Twitter to publicly express his feelings:

Regardless of whether Anthony chooses Houston as his next destination, Lin is expected to be traded to clear cap space for the Rockets. The likely future home of Lin, according to reports, appears to be Philadelphia.
