The New York Knicks used an image of Mitchell Robinson alongside Kevin Durant in a pitch to season ticket holders to renew, but later deleted the photo to avoid the perception that there was an ulterior motive using Durant’s image.
Durant will be a free agent this offseason and the Knicks are expected to pursue him.
“Game action photos are used all the time for marketing purposes, but given everything going on, we took the precaution of taking the photo down,” the Knicks said in a statement Sunday night. “To be clear, it was one of several rotating photos on the website.”
