    It is, only if there is a question mark.

    This does not make sense to me. Is there any context?

    Yes, I'm asking my friend what James had said to her about our date.

    Did James say he's not into me or did you think that when I told you we will/would stay friends.

    Yes. Can you please check the sentence for me? I'd prefer to leave my personal life out of this. Thank you for understanding.

    Sorry. I was confused.

    Your sentence is fine. Either modal will work.
