Jeremy Lin also wears No. 7, and it looks like the team has already decided to hand it over to Anthony if he picks Houston as his next destination. Lin was No. 17 when the two were teammates in New York.
But odds are it won't be a problem because Lin likely wouldn't be along for the ride since he is scheduled to make more than $14 million next season (more than James Harden). The Rockets would have to part ways with Lin to clear enough cap space to sign Anthony.
