Rockets GM Explains Controversial Melo Pitch That "Disrespected" Jeremy Lin

The Houston Rockets left Jeremy Lin feeling "disrespected" after a presentation to free agent Carmelo Anthony on Wednesday - the pitch included pictures of Anthony wearing a #7 Rockets jersey...a jersey that still belongs to Lin.

Now, Rockets GM Daryl Morey has tried his best to explain the situation (tweets via Fox Houston Sports Director Mark Berman):



Houston is one of four teams meeting with Anthony this week - in addition to Tuesday's visit with the Chicago Bulls and Wednesday's visits with the Rockets and Dallas Mavericks, Anthony will meet with LA Lakers management in Los Angeles on Thursday. Anthony has also met with the New York Knicks, who are trying hard to retain him despite the crowded market for his services.
