NBA star JJ Redick may play for the Los Angeles Clippers, but he called this Austin, Texas, villa home until recently. Built in 2010, the residence is situated in the West Lake Hills neighborhood and features soaring ceilings, French doors, arched doorways, and crown moldings. There’s a large kitchen with a central island and a butler’s pantry. Additional highlights include a media room with a bar and a wood-paneled library with built-ins.

Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul is looking to make a change to his home lineup, listing his estate in Bel-Air for sale at $11.495 million. It was four years ago that the perennial All-Star bought the eight-bedroom, 11-bedroom mansion four years ago from singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne for $8.495 million. He’s since bought another home on two acres in Calabasas for $8.995 million. Obscured on either side by tall privacy hedges, the two-story Mediterranean sits on half an acre in guard-gated Bel-Air Crest and takes in canyon and reservoir views.

It’s a basketball brotherhood troika. Latvian-born NBA star player Kristaps Porzingis just scored a new pad in Midtown West.
