Kevin Durant’s relationship history hasn’t been as defined as his exploits as a professional basketball player. The American athlete is a popular name across the globe but he has managed to maintain some level of privacy in his love life. Durant began playing basketball when he was young, right through high school and into college. Following a phenomenal 2006-07 season of college basketball with the Texas Longhorns, he declared for the NBA draft and was selected by the Seattle SuperSonics as the second overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft. He played for the team which soon became known as the Oklahoma City Thunder until 2016 when he joined the Golden States Warriors.
Kevin moved on in July 2019 when he signed with the Brooklyn Nets, the team he currently plays for. In the years he has spent in the NBA, and indeed right from his high school days, the small forward has pulled off so many career achievements that it has become pretty hard to keep up with his accomplishments in the sport. The 11-time NBA All-Star has been named to the All-NBA First Team six times and is a two-time NBA champion and NBA Finals MVP. He was also the league’s Most Valuable Player in 2014, the 2008 NBA Rookie of the Year, and much more. All of these made him someone a lot of people are interested in keeping up with every aspect of his life, especially his personal life.
The 33 years old have never been married but he has been romantically linked with several women, one of whom he was engaged to.
Who Is Kevin Durant Dating At The Moment?
Given his age and the fact that he has a successful career, one can understand why people assume that the NBA star is a family man. For a long time, his multitude of fans and those who follow professional basketball have been searching for his wife, but Kevin Durant isn’t married and has never been.
Apart from the family he was born into, he has no other family and isn’t a father to anyone. If anything, this has only made people very curious about who he’s dating. Unfortunately, Kevin has increasingly embraced keeping his private life private. Much isn’t known about his love life in recent times which has made celebrity gossip platforms conclude that he is single. For all we know, he might be dating someone but keeping it quiet.
Although he is not known to be in a relationship with anyone at the moment, it is no secret that he has dated several women over the years.

It was only a matter of time before people concluded that she was talking about Kevin Durant. This is so because the small forward is said to be the only Libra in the Brooklyn Nets team.
If Kevin and Lana had something, it was a brief romance that ended before it started. According to Lana, the NBA player was boring and not spicy enough for her. Also, he brought another woman to their date. Before the NBA player, Lana dated Mike Majlak whom she met through Logan Paul.
