Knicks remove photo with Kevin Durant from season ticket pitch

Share

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

Opposing teams expect the Knicks to be aggressive in pursuing the top free agents in the coming offseason, a group that includes Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Kyrie Irving.

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 Knicks said in a statement to the New York Daily News the image was one of "several rotating photos on the website". As the image spread online, it was probably easy for some observers to suspect the Knicks were sending a less-than-subtle signal about why it might be well worth it to renew season tickets.

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.

Durant, who is expected to opt out of his Warriors contract after this season, has been dogged all season by speculation about whether he will re-sign with Golden State or move elsewhere this summer.

"I have nothing to do with the Knicks", Durant said at a press conference last weekend.

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

"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 Warriors defeated the Suns 117-107.
