Kevin Durant Just Got Engaged To A WNBA Player

Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant popped the question to his WNBA girlfriend Monica Wright.

Wright confirmed their engagement after her Minnesota Lynx won 91-59 over the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday. Wright is a 5’10” guard who, like Durant, was a second overall draft pick. 

The two have known each other since meeting in 2006 at the McDonalds High School All-American games. The engagement closely matches the movie Love and Basketball, something Gina Prince-Bythewood, the movie’s writer and director noticed herself in a tweet at Wright:

Here’s the engaged couple:
