Monica Wright engaged to Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant and Monica Wright were both highly touted Washington, D.C.,-area prep basketball stars

in high school, but the hour's drive separating Durant's home in Prince

George's County, Md., from Wright's in Prince William County, Va.,

meant the two didn't wind up actually crossing paths until the 2006 McDonald's All-American national showcase in San Diego. What began there as a friendship has since developed into something more, as the 24-year-old Oklahoma City Thunder star and the just-about-to-turn-25-year-old reserve Minnesota Lynx wing player are now engaged to be married.
