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.

While the New York Knicks sport the worst record in the National Basketball Association at 10-45, there is some hope on the horizon with rumors swirling that Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant might sign with the team in the offseason.

The Knicks said in a statement to the New York Daily News the image was one of "several rotating photos on the website".

Kevin Durant, for example, could be one of those free agents.

The photo was part of a pitch to season-ticket holders to renew their packages for the 2019-20 season.

The Knicks might have taken the image down to avoid a tampering fine from the National Basketball Association, or at least a warning from the league, as it already has an issue with prominent players appearing to eye their next teams before their contracts are up.

Durant isn't the only superstar to become available in the summer, with Jimmy Butler, Kawhi Leonard and Kyrie Irving all having the option to exit their contracts, while Kemba Walker will be an unrestricted free agent. I don't know who traded Porzingis.

The team released a statement shortly after.

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 players were Dwight Howard and Chris Paul.
