Knicks hiding from Rockets to avoid receiving offer sheet?
Across Las Vegas on Saturday, Rockets officials and couriers fanned out trying to deliver Jeremy Linís offer sheet to the Knicks in what has become an odd bit of NBA front office hide and seek.
Handing over the paper work has proved as difficult as reaching a deal to land Dwight Howard.
The Rockets have tried to deliver the offer sheet to the Knicks since Friday afternoon, but they had eluded their efforts, holding up the start of the three-day clock to match the offer or let Lin go to the Rockets, according to a person familiar with the process.
The Rockets had called and asked where they could deliver the offer sheet but were told that information would not be shared. By Friday evening, a courier called the hotel room of a Knicks official but did not get an answer. Roughly 30 minutes later, a front desk clerk reached him but was told the Knicks were not taking deliveries and that he would not come to the front desk to pick up a package.
