Smith took to Twitter to set the record straight about his report.
Here we go with the lies again. I never said any trade offers were made regarding Kyrie & @BrooklynNets. What I said is, they would do a deal to swap Kyrie for Ben Simmons in a heartbeat, but @KDTrey5 ain’t having it. He loves his brother Kyrie. He won’t have that!

Twitter reacted to Stephen A. Smith’s callout:
How can you say that you never said that when you blatantly use phrases like “could’ve ended up in Philly”, “KD wasn’t having it” or “(Philly) might’ve said no”? Using past tense words would mean that this had occurred already? #wewantMaxback pic.twitter.com/dru7oIpZf7

stop the cap, you fabricate stories to get views. Kyrie and Nets for clicks
— Jeri Tsai (@JeriTsaiNets) September 23, 2021
You literally said he could’ve ended up in Philly but KD said no. That insinuates a trade was discussed. Offered and discussed is semantics but what did you expect when you said what you said?

Skip Bayless owns Stephen. Only trustworthy source in sports

Don't talk in absolutes then pick and choose when to reference sources.
If Nets would do a deal in a "heartbeat", you're implying to have inside info on that…so it's not wrong to react the way people have.
Understand your own platform, you created this mess.

Stephen A. Smith has a history of saying things like their facts, then backtracking if he gets called out for his reporting.
The man has built his whole career off doing this crap.
No one should ever feel sorry about “lying” on Stephen A.
