Wozniacki called it the happiest day of her life. 

The prosposal took place just days after Wozniacki beat Venus Williams in Singapore to clinch the WTA Finals. She was previously engaged to golf star Rory McIlroy before calling the wedding off back in 2014 shortly after sending out their wedding invitations. 

Lee last played for the Spurs in 2016-17, averaging 7.3 points per game in 79 games played. He spent five seasons with the Warriors, winning one championship and making one All-Star team.

Beasley -- the No. 2 overall pick in the 2008 draft -- will be playing for his seventh NBA team.

The 29-year old also played for two different teams in China.

Beasley was teammates with LeBron James in Miami during the 2013-14 season.

Jonas Jerebko ready to show he's 'a lot better player than people think'

Jonas Jerebko ready to show he's 'a lot better player than people think'

Earlier this week, Jonas Jerebko was introduced to Bay Area media members.

He talked about his expectations for next season and his role with the Warriors.

On Friday morning, he was a guest on 95.7 The Game and told Warriors fans they should have a pretty high bar for the "Swedish Larry Bird."

"I've been 10 years in the league and I feel like I'm getting better every year. I feel like I haven't played my best basketball yet," Jerebko declared. "The most minutes I did play was my rookie year."

Jerebko -- the 39th pick in the 2009 draft -- averaged 9.3 points and 6.0 rebounds as a rookie in Detroit.

He missed the entire 2010-11 season because of a torn Achilles tendon, but bounced back in 2011-12 to the tune of 8.7 points and 4.8 rebounds per contest.

The 31-year old played a couple more seasons in Detroit and was then traded to Boston in February 2015.

He re-signed with the Celtics in July 2015 and averaged 15.1 minutes and 15.8 minutes per contest in his two seasons under Brad Stevens.

In Utah last year, Jerebko registered 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 15.3 minutes, and shot over 41 percent from 3-point territory.

"I got a lot more to give and I'm a lot better player than people think I am sometimes," Jerebko said. "I'm ready to show that."
