The New York Knicks didn't exactly have the free agency that many fans had hoped or envisioned. They missed out on all the big stars, namely Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, who many had penciled on to New York's roster next season.

But despite missing out on what most would call the top-tier free agents, the Knicks did sign a few young up-and-coming forwards in Julius Randle and Bobby Portis. Albeit lesser-known names, the latter was mistaken for his old teammate by one of his new hometown newspapers – the New York Post.

In an article outlining the Knicks' newest additions, the picture that was listed as Bobby Portis when it was actually a photo of his former Wizards' teammate, Bradley Beal.

Portis took it like a champ and laughed off the mis-identified photo. And Beal even joined in to make a Twitter comment about the mishap.

It shouldn't worry Portis too much though, as playing in New York City and more specifically at Madison Square Garden now, he'll have plenty of chances to get his face in the tabloids.
