Fan who spit on Trae Young banned indefinitely by Knicks

The New York Knicks issued the following statement after footage of Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young being spit upon by a fan surfaced:

"We investigated the matter and determined that this patron, who is not a season ticket holder, did indeed spit on Trae Young, and for that reason, he is now banned from The Garden indefinitely. We apologize to Trae and the entire Atlanta Hawks organization for this fan's behavior. This was completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our venue. We have turned the information over to the appropriate authorities."
