Sorry ladies, but NBA superstar, Nike Basketball spokesman and Roc Nation Sports client Kevin Durant is officially off the market. You probably didn’t have enough game, on the court, to catch his attention anyway. KD is engaged to WNBA guard and former UVA star Monica Wright.
Reports the NBA:
Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant is engaged to Minnesota Lynx guard Monica Wright.
Wright confirmed the engagement following Minnesota’s 91-59 victory over the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday night.
Durant, who was selected with the second overall pick in the 2007 draft, just completed his sixth season in the NBA. The 24-year-old forward averaged 28.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 4.6 assists last season.
Wright is in her fourth season in the WNBA. She played her college ball at Virginia and turns 25 on July 15.
KD recently unveiled his latest signature basketball sneaker, the Nike KD VI. We’re type jealous that Wright got an early pair of the KD VIs in the “Pre-Heat” colorway.
The couple has been pretty hush about their relationship but you can check out some photos of them together (mostly sublte nods to each other) in the gallery.
Congrats to Kevin and Monica. Also, Wahoowa (it’s a University of Virginia thing).
