Knicks delete Durant photo from ticket pitch on website

Kristaps Porzingis

While the New York Knicks sport the worst record in the National Basketball Association at 10-45, there is some hope on the horizon with rumors swirling that Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant might sign with the team in the offseason.

The New York Knicks were left red faced after they used a picture of Kevin Durant in a campaign to promote season tickets, which had to be taken down.

While Robinson is popular among Knicks fans, it would be understandable if the team was trying to look beyond its current roster for ways to lure fans into renewing their season tickets.

Hard to imagine that this particular photo choice was an unintentional oversight.

"Game action photos are used all the time for marketing purposes", the statement read.

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

Kevin Durant, for example, could be one of those free agents.

Also, counting recent trades the Knicks have made, they could have about $75 million in salary cap space toward pursuing a high-priced player, according to reporting from ESPN.

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".

"I come here every day and [you reporters] ask me about free agency, ask my teammates, my coaches and you rile up the fans about it. Let us play basketball".

The Knicks' interest in the 10-time All-Star is one of the NBA's worst-kept secrets and Durant has repeatedly been linked with a move to NY this summer.

The team released a statement shortly after.
