Knicks Delete Image Of Kevin Durant In Pitch To Season Ticket Holders

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

The New York Knicks have removed a photo that features their promising rookie center, Mitchell Robinson, from a website used by the team for season ticket holders. Why? That was most likely done on goal.

Former New York Knicks centre Kristaps Porzingis reportedly had expressed a desire to play for the Toronto Raptors prior to ultimately being traded to the Dallas Mavericks. Still, they made a curious photo choice when asking season-ticket holders to renew before a February 28 deadline.

"Game action photos are used all the time for marketing purposes, but given everything going on, we took precaution of taking the photo down", reads the team's official statement, via Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News.

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. The transaction gives the Knicks two slots for super-max contracts and over $70 million in cap space this offseason, with Durant being the prized player on the market.

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

Through his three career National Basketball Association seasons, Porzingis, the fourth overall pick of the 2015 draft, has averaged 17.8 points per game to go along with 7.1 rebounds.
