  • According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Durant and Wright have known each other since the 2006 McDonald’s High School All-American Game.

    Wright, a 5-foot-11 guard, was the second overall pick in the 2010 WNBA draft. She is averaging 9.0 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists a game for the Lynx this season.

    Durant and Wright have kept their relationship quiet. Even as recently as May, a FoxSportsNorth.com article about their friendship made no reference to the two being romantically involved.

    Wright also has the same name as a character in the 2000 film Love & Basketball. Durant made reference to that character in a 2011 tweet that takes on a new significance with this news:
