Congratulations are in order for Oklahoma City superstar Kevin Durant who proposed to his longtime girlfriend, WNBA player Monica Wright. Well, possilbly. Though neither Durant or Wright have confirmed the engagement, Media Takeout is reporting that KD popped the question this weekend to the Lynx guard and The Oklahomian is confirming. The couple were apparently close friends in high school and developed a relationship from that friendship. The report goes on to say the two had been dating 'for months' and offers a photo with Wright rocking a diamond ring. WNBA legend Tina Thompson took to twitter to send out her own well wishes: Super CONGRATS to @monnie22 and @KDTrey5 two of my faves so so so happy for you all! I love, love! Tina Thompson (@IamTinaThompson) July 7, 2013 NBA Legion congratulated the couple with confidence that the event took place: Congratulations to Kevin Durant and his soon to be wife, WNBA player Monica Wright! Durant proposed last night, she said yes! NBA Legion (@MySportsLegion) July 7, 2013 Of note, both of these tweets came out after the initial MTO report. Neither Durant or Wright have talked much about their relationship. DurantAs of Sunday, Wright was back in Minnesota as the Lynx take on the Mercury and Kevin Durant tweeted he was watching the Thunder's summer league team, which is playing in Orlando. No word if he was watching in person or via lifestream. Either way, congratulations are in order, if indeed the rumors are true. Happy Sunday all! loslynx gameday Monica Wright (@monnie22) July 7, 2013 Gettin ready to watch my boys play @okcthunder, lets go @jlamb @rjOKCson_15 @FlyDre21 @Stevenadams @D_Orton33 Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) July 7, 2013
