Wright hasn't been nearly as coy.

The No. 2 overall pick by Minnesota in 2010 has posted several photos of herself wearing Thunder gear onto her social media accounts. One is of her wearing a Durant jersey, and another picture shows Wright wearing an oversized sweatshirt and shorts while standing next to Durant.

According to reports, Durant and Wright have been friends since high school.

Wright, who will celebrate her 25th birthday on July 15, attended Forest Park High School in Woodbridge, Va., about 30 minutes outside of Washington, D.C. She was named the Gatorade Player of the Year and was ranked the No. 2 guard and No. 11 overall player in the nation before attending the University of Virginia. As a senior with the Cavaliers, Wright was named the ACC Player of the Year, ACC Defensive Player of the Year and National Defensive Player of the Year.
