Knicks remove photo of Durant from promotion

Knicks Warriors Kevin Durant

Rumors around the league suggests the Knicks front office are not only gunning for Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant, but are nearly sure that they will sign him in free agency.

The photo included Mitchell Robinson alongside Durant in a game scenario, alongside a link providing more information for fans on renewing their season tickets. That was most likely done on goal.

The New York Knicks are clearly all in for the 2019-20 campaign. A few factors have given its use extra scrutiny.

"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", the Knicks said in a statement Sunday night.

First, Durant has a player option in his contract with the Warriors and can become a free agent this summer. The Knicks will likely have a high pick in the 2019 National Basketball Association draft and project to have roughly $70 million in cap space this summer - enough for two max contracts.

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.

And the Knicks made headlines again today when they removed a picture featuring Durant from an advertisement to season-ticket holders.

The Atlanta Hawks were fined for tampering in 2013 when an email to season-ticket holders mentioned "players who are now under contract to other teams but who will become free agents [in the] summer".

Durant is in his 12th season in the National Basketball Association and one of the two best players in the world. He was the NBA Finals MVP as the Warriors swept the Cleveland Cavaliers last June.

Durant is averaging 27.3 points, 7.1 rebounds and six assists for Golden State so far this season, his third with the team.
