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. Well, the Knicks sort of jumped the gun on the Kevin Durant front recently when they included him in the promotional imagery for their 2019-2020 season ticket campaign.

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

Several of the team's season-ticket holders went on social media earlier in the weekend to show off the images taken from the Knicks website, including the photo of Durant and Robinson. Another fan corroborated the image before the Knicks eventually took it down.

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.

But yesterday he explained why he lost his cool with the local media. I don't know who traded Porzingis. "I'm trying to play basketball".

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.

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". 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".
