Kevin Durant's brother clarifies comment that led to free agent speculation


So here's what happened ...

After the Warriors' win over the Thunder on Tuesday night, Kevin Durant posted a series of six photos to Instagram with the caption: "1 down, 81 more. What a night!!"

Durant's brother, Tony, left the following comment: "Yessir brother!!!! Filling the hand up before we get outta here!"

It's understandable for people to have interpreted this as a bad sign for the Warriors when it comes to Durant's future with the franchise. But on Wednesday morning, Tony responded on Instagram with the following explanation:

Tony posted an additional comment saying: "delete this post it's not accurate lmaooo report this true stuff please brother."

If in fact Tony does know that Kevin is leaving Golden State in July, and if that is what he intended to convey in his original comment ... that would be a very odd thing to do.
