The New York Knicks traded Kristaps Porzingis before the deadline and will head into the offseason with plenty of cap space to make a run at two max-level free agents. One of the biggest rumors out there right now is that the Knicks will somehow get Kevin Durant and possibly another big-name player. If anyone questioned it, look no further than their latest season ticket promotion photo that features Durant.
Hard to imagine that this particular photo choice was an unintentional oversight.
The Knicks, mired in a franchise-worst 16-game losing streak, have made no secret about their desire to lure Durant to NY, and they will have the salary-cap space to offer both him and another megastar max contracts.
After not speaking to the media for nine days, the Warriors star blew up on the media for speculating on his upcoming free agency plans - which could include the Knicks - during a press conference last week after the Warriors demolished the Spurs.
"Game action photos are used all the time for marketing purposes, but given everything going on, we took the precaution of taking the photo down", a Knicks spokesman said in a statement.
The Knicks have now lost 45 of the team's last 55 games.
Durant has won two consecutive National Basketball Association titles since joining the Warriors as a free agent before the 2016-17 season.
"So I was just letting them know what I want to talk about when I come into practice or before shootaround or after a game". I'm trying to play basketball.
In the image, you can see Knicks player Mitchell Robinson standing next to Durant who still has a Warriors jersey.
