Since silly season seemingly never ends in the NBA, it’s probably worth nothing more than a good laugh hearing the vaguest of rumblings that Kyrie Irving “could’ve ended up in Philly” as the Ben Simmons saga swirls around the league. 

That quote comes courtesy of ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith who offered up the nugget on “First Take” the other morning. He said the Nets could have seriously explored a trade for Simmons, the beleaguered point guard doing everything he can right now to not play for the 76ers this upcoming season. That, of course, would’ve meant sending Irving, the Nets mercurial guard, to the 76ers. Smith took to Twitter Thursday to clarify his remarks he felt were getting all kinds of twisted.
