Kevin Durant's brother is at it again. 

In his Instagram story, Tony Durant, brother of the Golden State Warriors star, appeared to reference the on-court altercation between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green in Monday's 121-116 overtime defeat to the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center.

He later explained he was referring to the end of his brother's NBA career and not his ability to leave the Warriors as a free agent in the offseason.

Tony Durant's statement regarding what this comment meant https://t.co/PMPHfBGXjs

This time around, Tony Durant may have a harder time explaining the meaning of his comments.

The Athletic's Marcus Thompson II reported the argument between Durant and Green was part of a larger issue centered around Durant's ability to opt out of his two-year, $61.5 million contract in the summer.

According to Thompson, some Warriors players disagreed with the manner of Green's outburst but agreed "Green's concerns about how Durant has handled free agency weren't off-base."

Having Durant's brother possibly subtweet Green on social media likely won't help matters.
