Knicks Using Kevin Durant

Calling it nothing more than a marketing tool, the New York Knicks have nonetheless deleted a game action photo of Golden State Warriors star forward Kevin Durant and Knicks rookie center Mitchell Robinson from their website after it was used in a ticket sales promotion.

The Knicks will have two max salary spots in the offseason following their trade with the Mavericks late last month and they're expected to pursue the 30-year-old star if he becomes a free agent.

After the trade of Kristaps Porzingis, one thing has become abundantly clear: The Knicks had better have a plan.

Some close to Durant see NY as a possible landing spot for the back-to-back NBA Finals MVP if he chooses to leave the Warriors, according to league sources.

In the message, which was only visible in the subscriber portal of the Knicks' website, the organization informed season ticket holders that the deadline to opt-in to renew their season tickets was February 28. Another fan corroborated the image before the Knicks eventually took it down. I still got to talk to him a lot. "I'm trying to play basketball".

Don't read anything into the use of the photo, however, the team urged in a statement released Sunday night.

The Knicks have been one of the worst teams in the National Basketball Association this season and will enter their matchup Monday against the Cavaliers with a 10-45 record.

The team apparently sent out this message to all of its current season ticket holders. The players were Dwight Howard and Chris Paul.
