Minnesota Lynx star Seimone Augustus hopes to marry her fiancee LaTaya Varner in Minnesota.

The 29-year-old Augustus, who earned MVP honors while leading the Lynx to the 2011 WNBA championship, told reporters on Friday that she would marry in Minnesota if a marriage bill pending in the Minnesota Senate is approved on Monday and signed into law by Tuesday.

“It's just [an] exciting thing to see so many people support it,” Augustus said during her first day of training camp with the Lynx.

Augustus strongly voiced her opposition to last year's referendum on a constitutional amendment which sought to limit marriage to heterosexual couples. Voters rejected the amendment, but gay and lesbian couples remained unable to marry in the state. Instead, Augustus and Varner planned to exchange vows in Iowa, where such unions were legalized in 2009.

But that plan was scuttled due to an earlier-than-expected start for Lynx training camp.

When asked if she now plans to marry in Minnesota, Augustus, a Louisiana native, answered: “Of course, why not? This is like my adopted home.”

“We'll have to plan [the wedding] for the end of the season,” she said. “Hopefully after we win the championship.”
