Knicks delete Durant photo from ticket pitch on website

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

Because of the Knickerbockers' recent roster moves, trades and dismal record, it is entirely possible that NY will land all three superstars come 2019-20.

Calling it nothing more than a marketing tool, the New York Knicks have nonetheless deleted a game action photo of Golden State Warriors star forward Kevin Durant and Knicks rookie center Mitchell Robinson from their website after it was used in a ticket sales promotion. 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. "But given everything going on, we took precaution of taking the photo down".

"If I get an opportunity to talk to the media, I want to give the fans my perspective about the game, not about business, stuff that I can't control at this point", Durant said.

"It's causing all kinds of stir ups within the media and asking me all these questions". NY has lost 16 straight games, just four shy of a dubious franchise record, and holds the NBA's worst record.

NY will also be hoping to land Zion Williamson in the 2019 draft this year.

The Knicks will reportedly have $70 million in cap space at the end of the season and were recently crowned the most valuable team in the National Basketball Association, at an evaluation of $4 billion.

But this year's draft will see a new system implemented where the teams with the three worst regular-season records will each have a 14 per cent chance of winning the lottery.
