Knicks Remove Kevin Durant Photo From Season-Ticket Advertising

After trading Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks last month, the Knicks will have enough salary cap space this summer to sign two max-level free agents, and Durant is expected to be the top player available.

And, if Kevin Durant is available, the Knicks would gladly welcome him into Madison Square Garden with open arms.

The Knicks, in an advertisement asking season ticket holders to renew their tickets, used a picture of Durant guarding rookie forward Mitchell Robinson this week.

As the organization states, it was a rotating image that appears on their website, but given the amount of attention it has received, it decided it was in the team's best interest to remove it. "Real Knicks fans know that we're trying to just take this year to just develop us young guys and then next year hopefully make a push". The Pelicans' Anthony Davis was recently docked $50,000 after his agent made it publicly known that the all-star forward wanted to be traded, with the Lakers reported to be his preferred destination.

NY hinted at their plans this offseason by trading Kristaps Porzingis, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee to the Dallas Mavericks.

But yesterday he explained why he lost his cool with the local media.

Durant has won two consecutive National Basketball Association titles since joining the Warriors as a free agent before the 2016-17 season.

The photo was included in a renewal drive for season-ticket holders. They're not really true New Yorkers. A sales representative for the team was sacked, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, with the Hawks saying in a statement that the man's "specific reference" did not "represent how our basketball operations or our business staff have consistently communicated about free agency".
