It happens to the best of us.
When you do enough breaking news for a living, you are bound to get catfished or be wrong. Marc Spears put this tweet out earlier about Kyle Lowry getting a $14M offer from the Raptors:
Then it turns out that someone scammed him and he reported something false:
Received a scam text from someone posing as Raptors front office member.There is no offer on the table paying $14M.Apologize for the mistake

Again, it happens to just about everyone at some point. Possibly even WOJ. It’s more amusing at this point but remember, nothing is final until you see a team press conference anyway. It’s sources and reports season.
