Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic said he is engaged to tennis star Maria Sharapova.

Vujacic, who spoke before the Lakers played the Golden State Warriors in an exhibition game on Thursday night in San Diego, said the couple has not set a date.

Also, Vujacic, 26, said Sharapova, 23, said "yes' to his "old-school" proposal.

"We are both really happy," Vujacic said.

[Updated at 8:20 a.m.: Sharapova's agent confirmed the engagement in an e-mail to The Associated Press.]
