Kevin Durant has found love.

The Thunder star is now engaged.

He proposed to his girlfriend, WNBA player Monica Wright, on Saturday, The Oklahoman has confirmed.

The website mediatakeout.com first reported the news Sunday.

Durant, 24, hasn't said anything publicly about his relationship with Wright, who plays for the Minnesota Lynx. But mediatakeout.com obtained a picture of Wright flashing her engagement ring.

The two have been rumored to be dating since May, and Durant has attended at least two Lynx games this summer, one in Minnesota in late May and another in Los Angeles last week.

When a sideline reporter working the Lynx-Sparks game last week began asking probing questions attempting to inquire about Durant's interest in the WNBA during a live in-game interview, Durant didn't reveal anything more than a blush.

“I like women's basketball,” a blushing Durant said when asked what brought him to the game.

Durant was then asked if he went to see a specific player.

“I come to see all of them,” he said.

The closest Durant came to revealing anything about his relationship with Wright was when he admitted he is a Lynx fan.
