Fans of the 10-45 New York Knicks have nothing to look forward to except the possibility of adding marquee players in the offseason, and one of those potential free-agent signees appeared in a photo accompanying requests for season ticket renewals.

Golden State Warriors All-Star Kevin Durant has a player option for next season and could be someone the Knicks target.
