And, if Kevin Durant is available, the Knicks would gladly welcome him into Madison Square Garden with open arms.
Those plans were only speculated further after the team used a photo of Durant in a pitch to season ticket holders in hopes of an increase in renewals for the 2019-20 season. That was most likely done on objective.
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.
"Game action photos are used all the time for marketing purposes, but given everything going on, we took precaution of taking the photo down", reads the team's official statement, via Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News. In a ideal world for Knicks fans, the lowly Eastern Conference franchise will go from the cellar to the top of the standings next season, thanks to the additions of both Durant and Irving - and maybe even current Duke Blue Devils standout Zion Williamson.

The 28-year-old Wales worldwide will arrive in northern Italy on July 1 with his contract running until June 30, 2023. Aaron's made a fantastic contribution to our club since joining from Cardiff City in 2008.
Yet, Durant is aghast why anyone who follows basketball is more interested in what he'll do this summer, rather than what he did during a largely meaningless regular-season game.
After the Knicks' trade of Kristaps Porzingis cleared enough salary cap space to potentially sign two maximum-level free agents in July, rumors abounded that the team was already confident of landing Durant. After making himself unavailable for over a week, the two-time reigning Finals MVP launched into a tirade Wednesday, telling reporters: "I have nothing to do with the Knicks".
Barring he signs a new contract with the Mavs, Porzingis will be a restricted free agent at season's end.
