New York Knicks Used Kevin Durant In Season Ticket Promotional Package

New York Knicks Used Kevin Durant In Season Ticket Promotional Package

In what has been the worst kept secret in the National Basketball Association, the New York Knicks are all in on attracting the services of Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant in free agency this upcoming summer.

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

Those plans were only speculated further after the team used a photo of Durant in a pitch to season ticket holders in hopes of an increase in renewals for the 2019-20 season.




Kevin Durant spoke for the first time about his contentious press conference with the media last Wednesday, during a hit with ESPN's Get Up on Monday morning.

The photo showed Durant guarding Knicks rookie center Mitchell Robinson. "Real Knicks fans know that we're trying to just take this year to just develop us young guys and then next year hopefully make a push". Durant was unhappy with speculation that followed after he didn't speak to the media for eight days following the Knicks trading of Kristaps Porzingis to clear cap space for this offseason. The Knicks, though, have been closely linked to Durant, a two-time NBA Finals MVP, in free agency.

Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Porzingis who met with the Knicks before being acquired by the Mavs on January 31, gave NY a short list of teams that he desired to be traded to, which included the Raptors. A sales representative for the team was sacked, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, with the Hawks saying in a statement that the man's "specific reference" did not "represent how our basketball operations or our business staff have consistently communicated about free agency".
