The Real “Love & Basketball”: Kevin Durant Engaged To WNBA Baller Monica Wright

July 8, 2013  |  


Well ladies, another one off the market. And though many of you were looking at Kevin Durant for yourself, we hope that you can still manage a Congratulations for the OKC Thunder player. The Associated Press reported that the 24 year old forward is engaged to WNBA Minnesota Lynx guard Monica Wright.

We have to admit that these two kept their relationship under wraps as many of us didn’t even know they were dating. Smart.

That was until Wright, who is also 24, confirmed their engagement after the Lynx defeated the Phoenix Mercury 91-59 (ouch!) on Sunday night.

After scrounging through  a little light search on Monica’s Instagram, it’s clear that these two had a little something going on. The pictures (below) detail the two together or Face Time-ing one another. There are also messages of her support for the Thunder.
