New York Knicks Used Kevin Durant In Season Ticket Promotional Package

New York Knicks Used Kevin Durant In Season Ticket Promotional Package

In the midst of strong rumours linking Durant with a move to the Knicks this summer, it may be beyond coincidental that the Knicks used the Golden State Warriors star in their promotional material. Still, they made a curious photo choice when asking season-ticket holders to renew before a February 28 deadline.

The Knicks, in an advertisement asking season ticket holders to renew their tickets, used a picture of Durant guarding rookie forward Mitchell Robinson this week.

The thing is, players never want to tank, and Knicks rookie Kevin Knox is the ideal example of that.

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.

Trump Set to Announce 'American Artificial Intelligence Initiative'
U.S. president Donald Trump wants his country to spend more on artificial intelligence (AI) technology research. The executive order does not include any details about funding the initiative.

Don't read anything into the use of the photo, however, the team urged in a statement released Sunday night. "To be clear, it was one of several rotating photos on the website". The association caused a stir when a Knicks season-ticket holder pointed out the photo in a social media post.

Using an opposing player in a sales photo is not strictly against National Basketball Association rules, according to reporting from the New York Post, but Durant's contract situation has brought about concern. The players were Dwight Howard and Chris Paul. After making himself unavailable for over a week, the two-time reigning Finals MVP launched into a tirade Wednesday, telling reporters: "I have nothing to do with the Knicks".

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.
