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

Was it really just a coincidence that the Knicks used a photo of Kevin Durant in advertising for season-ticket renewals?

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.

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

BET posted a story reporting on Cardi B being the first solo female rapper to win best rap album at the Grammys. The network added: "We understand Nicki's position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her".

Just like any other fan base, Knicks fans want the best for their team going forward, and they feel that NY would be better-served having a chance of drafting Zion Williamson this June, or even potentially getting the No. 1 pick and trading it for Anthony Davis. "To be clear, it was one of several rotating photos on the website". The Knicks, though, have been closely linked to Durant, a two-time NBA Finals MVP, in free agency. 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.

The Atlanta Hawks were fined for tampering in 2013 when an email to season-ticket holders mentioned "players who are now under contract to other teams but who will become free agents [in the] summer".

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.
