Miami Fox Affiliate Falls For Fake Twitter Account Reports Ray Allen Signs With Heat

It is quite possible that Ray Allen will sign with the Heat.

Unfortunately for Miami’s Fox affiliate WSVN they wanted that breaking news so bad they reported it based off a fake Twitter account.

Ray Allen is indeed in Miami talking over a possible deal to sign with the Heat, but the contract’s far from signed. Don’t tell Miami’s Fox affiliate WSVN that, though, as they interrupted tonight’s newscast to deliver the breaking news that Allen had signed a three-year, $11 million contract. They credited Yahoo! Sports with the news, which is funny because Yahoo! Sports didn’t report anything of the sort. A fake Gene Wojnarowski Twitter account did, though
