    If it wasn't clear before Wednesday that Jeremy Lin's days with the Houston Rockets were numbered, it is now.

    In an effort to court Carmelo Anthony, the Rockets posted pictures of Anthony in a No. 7 jersey in the windows near one of the entrances to the Toyota Center.

    Anthony wore No. 7 with the New York Knicks, so it makes sense that they'd want to let him know how he'd look in Rockets red. The only problem? Lin currently wears No. 7 in Houston.

    Wednesday's visit in Houston is the second leg of Anthony's free-agent tour after he met with the Bulls in Chicago on Tuesday. He is scheduled to travel to Dallas to meet with the Mavericks later Wednesday.

    Among the contingent meeting with Anthony at the Toyota Center were Rockets center Dwight Howard and guard James Harden, owner Les Alexander, general manager Daryl Morey and coach Kevin McHale. Hall of Famer Clyde Drexler also is there to help with Houston's pitch.
