The New York Knicks are making it very difficult for the Houston Rockets to deliver the offer sheet on Jeremy Lin. The paper work must be delivered to Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald, but he has been a tough man for the Rockets to track down.
Reading on what is transpiring on the Rockets attempt to deliver the paper work is turning into a comedy, and is being described by Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
Rockets so far unable to hand deliver Lin offer sheet. Knicks refused to accept at team hotel. Glen Grunwald not at practice yest, gm today.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) July 14, 2012
Rockets had a courier knocking on doors at hotel, call room. Could not get someone to accept offer sheet yesterday.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) July 14, 2012
Rockets FedExed offer sheet to Knicks offices in NY, but league said GM Glen Grunwald must receive it himself. Clock to match at standstill.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) July 14, 2012
This is possibly the best tweet about the hilarity of the Rockets trying to deliver the offer sheet:
The Knicks are probably looking to stall as much as possible, because the signing of Lin for the Rockets will put their other moves on hold, particularly the Rockets attempt to pry Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic.
