When it comes to content, the NBA free-agent front is about as intriguing as it gets. One of the most explosive rumors came from none other than Stephen A. Smith of ESPN’s “First Take.”

“I got two phone calls last night — after hours — with folks telling me that LeBron James reached out to Kevin Durant via text about coming to Los Angeles.”

Turns out that was inaccurate, as Durant detailed to Mark Medina of The Bay Area News Group.

“Hell no. That was all false. All false. 100 percent false,” Durant said. “He didn’t talk about none of that stuff.”

Oh, and KD and LeBron meet on Wednesday at 7:30 pm when the Warriors match up with the Lakers in Las Vegas. Catch all the action, per usual, on 95.7 The Game.
