Houston Rockets forward Sam Dekker took to social media to announce his engagement to Olivia Harlan, a sideline reporter for the Atlanta Hawks.

Sam Dekker likes playing for the Houston Rockets, but he has a new teammate he likes even better than James Harden or anybody else on the team. He asked Olivia Harlan to marry him and proclaimed her to hold the top spot on his list.

The best teammate I could have!

Harlan may not help Dekker win professional basketball games, but his allegiance to her is certainly acceptable. A big congrats to the soon-to-be newlyweds from Space City Scoop.
