NBA veteran forward David Lee announced his retirement via Instagram on Sunday.

Lee, who played for the San Antonio Spurs last season, shared a photo of himself, fiancée Caroline Wozniacki, family and friends celebrating a surprise retirement party from the previous night.

“An epic night celebrating my retirement with my friends and family!” the 34-year-old wrote with pictures of the display and his group of revelers,” Lee wrote in the caption of the photo. “Thank you to my amazing fiancée [Caroline Wozniacki] for planning the surprise!”

Lee, 34, spent 14 seasons in the NBA, most notably with the New York Knicks (2005-2010) and Golden State Warriors (2010-15), as well as the Boston Celtics (2015-16), Dallas Mavericks (2015-16), before joining the Spurs prior to last season.

The former first-round pick averaged 13.5 points and 8.8 rebounds during the regular season, as well as 5.6 points and 4.4 rebounds during the postseason as a member of the Warriors, Mavericks and Spurs.

Lee was a two-time all-star during his stint with the Knicks in 2010 and 2013 and won an NBA championship with Golden State in 2015.
