An NBA writer and columnist for Spanish basketball website Sportando quit his job after being called out by Memphis Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons for giving inaccurate information.

“The Process” who also goes by the Twitter username @paxer89, tweeted news about the 28-year-old Florida product possibly getting surgery on his injured left knee and might miss the remainder of the season, which Parsons quickly denied.

Although the news was deleted by the columnist, it had already reached a number of readers who saw Parsons’ reply to the tweet. Sportando released a statement and came to the defense of their writer stating that he had a source who gave him the information. They also apologized to Parsons for the inaccurate information that was published.

Later in the day, the columnist took responsibility for his actions and tweeted that he will leave his job which has caused the website to lose some of its credibility.

Chandler Parsons has since not given any comment or statement over the reporter’s decision.

For what its worth, fans of Parsons and the Grizzlies can now breathe a sigh of relief as the misinformation has already been corrected, leaving them all free to go back and look forward to their prized swingman’s return.

The Grizzlies took a huge risk when they signed the 6-foot-10 stretch forward to a max contract last summer and are looking to get a return of investment starting this season.
