Ex-NBA star Derek Fisher popped the question to his girlfriend, former Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan — and she said, “YES!”
TMZ reports that 43-year-old Fisher got down on one knee during an intimate gathering at their Los Angeles-area home on April 7, surrounded by their kids and Gloria’s nephew.
Derek had some of Gloria’s friends take her out during the day so he could decorate the house while she was gone.
Derek and Gloria have been dating since 2015.
Both were previously married…. Gloria to Matt Barnes — which caused some legendary drama between Derek and his ex-Lakers teammate. But Barnes recently said the two are now cool. He also took to Instagram to let everyone know he’s “all for it” (Derek and Gloria’s engagement). That post has now been deleted and this one is in its place:

Barnes told The Breakfast Club that he and Derek were cool now and that his issue was not so much that he was dating Govan, but that he was living with Govan and his kids and hadn’t told him about it. Barnes said his twin boys told him about the relationship.
No word on when Derek and Gloria plan on officially tying the knot.
Meanwhile, Basketball Wives is returning to VH1 for another season of wig-snatching drama.
A few new girls are joining Evelyn Lozada, Shaunie O’Neal, Jennifer Williams, Malaysia Pargo, Tami Roman and Jackie Christie, who is still … Jackie, as evident from the trailer below.
