Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey received a letter from a potential NBA player saying he wouldn't commit to playing for Houston if the team drafted him next week. 

One problem: The sender describes himself as a soon-to-be 44-year-old.  

"I wanted to extend the courtesy of informing you that, if selected, I will not commit to play professional basketball for the Houston Rockets," the letter read. "Although your franchise has a talented staff and gifted players, I do not believe it would be in my best interest, or the team's, to become a member of your organization."

The photo of the letter cuts off before revealing any name. 

Morey shared the photo while also joking "And I thought we were a destination franchise..."

Revise your mock drafts accordingly.
