Golden State Warriors All-Star Kevin Durant has a player option for next season and could be someone the Knicks target.
Enough people noticed that the team had to release a statement addressing the photo choice and eventual decision to delete it.
“Game action photos are used all the time for marketing purposes, but given everything going on, we took precaution of taking the photo down,” the team said, per Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News. “To be clear, it was one of several rotating photos on the website.”
