ESPN’s Chris Broussard is walking back is comments about Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s reaction to DeAndre Jordan backing out of the deal with the team, and has apologized for his tweets about the situation.

Here’s the statement from Broussard’s Twitter.

Regarding my Wednesday report: I should have attempted to contact Mark Cuban before reporting what my sources were telling me. I always try to carry myself with honesty and integrity both personally and professionally. I recognize that I tweeted hastily, I’m sorry for it, and I will learn from my mistake.

Both Cuban and his brother took Broussard to task for reporting that Cuban was driving through downtown Houston “begging” Jordan’s family for his address.

This caps off a rough week for Broussard. In addition to his brief feud with Cuban, he also got into it on Twitter with ESPN coworker Bomani Jones about Russell Wilson and premarital sex. Yeah, that’s a thing I just wrote…talk about a slow news cycle.
