NBA rumors: Tyrese Maxey's home catches fire on Christmas Eve

More on Real Estate

Former Miami Heat player Meyers Leonard, who was traded from the team earlier this year, sold his waterfront Bay Point home for $11 million. Leonard and his wife, Elle Leonard, owned the home at 741 Buttonwood Lane for a year. They paid nearly $7.8 million for the property last December, which means they flipped it for 41 percent more than their purchase price.
Kemba Walker’s Brookline mansion has sold months after the Boston Celtics traded the All-Star point guard to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The 9,592-square-foot Brookline mansion at 37 Sears Road closed for an undisclosed sum on Oct. 26, according to filings made public this week with the Norfolk County Registry District of the Land Court and in an Instagram post from Newbrook Realty founder Samantha Stumpo, who has now sold the home twice.
The former NBA star JJ Redick has tossed his baller Brooklyn apartment onto the market. He and his wife, Chelsea Redick, are asking $8.5 million for the duplex, the Wall Street Journal first reported. The couple purchased the newly developed penthouse in 2017 for $6,083,005, according to®.
NBA Basketball Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady does not yet have a buyer for his $8M Sugar Land estate after nearly three months. Clevell Harris of CA Modern Realty, the listing agent for the home, declined to comment on Monday.
Following a slam dunk win against Bayside Council after it blocked his $4.7 million redevelopment of his beachfront home, retired basketball star Andrew Bogut and wife Jessica are going to sell the two-block property. The existing house, which was to make way for the proposed palace on Beach Road at Beaumaris, has been empty for years, but has recently been “styled” and is now full of trendy furniture ahead of an imminent major sales campaign.
Bogut’s fight to build a forever family home has taken years. In March, all five councillors on the Bayside Council’s planning committee voted against giving the development a permit, against the advice of planning officers who approved it. But in October, Victoria’s Civil and Administrative Tribunal overruled the council and approved the proposal for the four-bedroom mansion with a swimming pool, gym, sauna, massage room, roof terrace and, of course, half-size basketball court.
A Potomac house owned by former Washington Wizards star John Wall is on the market for $4.25 million. The house at 8929 Harvest Square Court in the Kentsdale Estates development has seven bedrooms, plus nine full bathrooms and three half bathrooms, according to the listing. It has close to 17,000 square feet and sits on 2 acres.
After more than three years on the market, Shaquille O’Neal’s Isleworth mansion has finally sold for $11 million, one of the highest prices ever paid for a home in Central Florida. A view of the front of the 31,000 square-foot-home currently owned by NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal, located at 9927 Giffin Court, in Windermere, photographed Wednesday, April 14, 2021.

NBA player Tim Hardaway Jr. has sold his waterfront home in the gated community of Normandy Isle in Miami Beach, Florida, for $6.75 million, netting more than $2 million in profit in two years. The 5,239-square-foot house was listed for $7 million in July with Isaac Malagon of Empire Network Realty. It went into contract in just over 10 days and the transaction closed last week, listing records show.
Hoops star James Johnson, who just signed with the Brooklyn Nets, has also signed a lease to rent a Tribeca pad at 57 Reade St. Johnson, 34, is a 12-year NBA veteran. “He toured the apartment in late September and signed the lease in early October. He loves the layout and the location,” a source close to the deal told Gimme. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo was asking $16,500 a month to rent.
Last week, Los Angeles Lakers co-owner Jesse Buss put his Los Angeles mansion on the market for about $10.9 million. According to Jennifer Beron of Compass, the exact listing price is $10.950 million. For the best part, 17-time All-Star LeBron James lives nearby. In fact, James is his neighbor. The three-story mansion has a fancy underground pool, home theater, nine bathrooms, six bedrooms and a nice gymnasium. In addition to the aforementioned features, Buss also has a wine cellar and bar. Furthermore, Buss bought the property back in 2018.
After just four days on the market, Victor Oladipo’s Orlando, FL, home has found a buyer. The Miami Heat shooting guard scored a quick sale of the property, complete with its over-the-top shoe closet. On the market for $1.8 million, the custom home is currently in pending sale status. The two-time All-Star purchased the luxury residence in 2016 for $1,274,000, after being drafted by the Orlando Magic.
The waterfront estate once owned by former Miami Heat star Chris Bosh is on the market for $42 million. The fully renovated 11,709-square-foot mansion is the only move-in-ready residence available on the prestigious North Bay Road in Miami Beach. Celebrity neighbors include Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber, Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner.
In what could be another sign that Ben Simmons is serious about not returning to the Philadelphia area, the 76ers point guard put one of his residences up for sale and according to sources discussed the possibility of selling the other one. His place at The Ritz-Carlton Residences of Philadelphia was listed on Sunday for $3.1 million.
The Sixers withheld $8.25 million of his salary Friday and placed the payment in an escrow account. Sources have said that was an option as the Sixers looked to ensure any fines for his training camp no-show and games missed could be deducted from that account moving forward.
Former NBA player and Detroit native Chris Webber broke ground on a $50 million facility cannabis facility in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood Tuesday morning. The facility will be known as Players Only Holdings and will focus on real estate development, cannabis cultivation, brand partnerships, and creative content development and management.
The New York Knicks’ Evan Fournier is no longer a player in Orlando’s housing market. The former Orlando Magic player on Sept. 1 sold his Winter Park home at 1711 Via Tuscany for $2.7 million, according to documents filed with Orange County Sept. 2. According to Orange County Property Appraiser records, that was the last Orange County property owned by Fournier, who was traded by the Magic to the Boston Celtics in March.
The home drew a purchase price 17% higher than it originally cost, as Fournier and his wife Laura Kebe bought the home for $2.3 million in 2016. Of course, the median home price in Central Florida’s hot housing market shot up 55% from July 2016 to July 2021, according to the Orlando Regional Realtor Association. This is the second Central Florida home Fournier sold since January. In February, he sold a 6,384-square-foot Winter Park home to fellow NBA player Courtney Lee for $3.05 million.
Fresh off signing a four-year deal with the Houston Rockets worth $36 million, former Celtic Daniel Theis wrapped up business in Boston by selling his custom Colonial-style home for $2.21 million. It’s a nice return for the German-born big man, who paid $1.8 million for it last year, a few months after re-signing with the Celtics in 2019.
Former NBA star Andrew Bogut has made the most of his time in lockdown in Melbourne, selling his Concord house on the quiet for $4.1 million. This is the renovated Californian bungalow Bogut and his wife Jessica listed in June last year after he quit the Sydney Kings having moved to Melbourne.
Last month's promotion with a short-term rental company may have succeeded in finding a buyer for the former Highland Park home of NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen. Pippen purchased the nearly 2.7 estate new in 2004 for $2.225 million. It sits on a 2.7 parcel on Old Mill Road adjacent to wooded park district property and the Skokie River.
“I was offered the head coaching job with the Sonics in 1974. When I took the job I was a single parent and chose Mercer Island because it had the best schools in the Pacific Northwest,” Russell told the Business Journal by email. “The house was not built for me. I was actually looking at the house next door, but it was not private enough. I not only purchased this house but the two lots above me for the added privacy, and a number of years ago sold them but still maintained my privacy here at the house.”
Russell won 11 NBA titles in his 13 seasons with the Boston Celtics. He became the first Black coach of a major professional team in America when he was named the player-coach of the Celtics in 1966. “I have left behind my trophy case and an autographed ball for the next owner, and I hope they enjoy the home as much as I have over the last almost 50 years,” he said.
The Brooklyn Park City Council gave the green light to Devean George’s nonprofit, Building Blocks, to build an 83-unit, five-story apartment building at 7621 Brooklyn Boulevard North. The building would also have space for a restaurant and retail on the bottom level, and 20 percent of the units would be affordable.
Kevin Durant still has off-season love for Southern California, it would seem. Two summers ago, the perennial All-Star bounced out of his oceanfront Malibu villa, selling the $12.2 million house to “CSI” television franchise creator Anthony Zuiker. A professional move from the NBA’s Golden State Warriors to the Brooklyn Nets soon followed. But now Durant is back, and the 32-year-old holds the keys to a $15.6 million mansion in Hidden Hills, a celebrity-packed guard-gated city in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley.
Built this year by a local developer on speculation, the house was pre-sold to Durant prior to its completion, and was never on the market — so details remain exceptionally slim. But the two-story mansion is large, probably around 10,000 square feet, and was designed in the trendy modern farmhouse architectural style. Sited near the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a 1.8-acre lot, the spacious property is a literal stone’s throw from the $17.5 million mansion of fellow NBA star Ben Simmons.
At 6 feet, 7 inches tall, New Orleans Pelicans superstar Zion Williamson doesn’t often get rejected at the basketball goal. But it was a different story this week when he and his family faced off with the city’s Historic District Landmarks Commission, which swatted away their plan to add a home theater, a workout space and other rooms on top of a 233-year-old Garden District mansion they bought last year.
HDLC approval was required because adding a level to the First Street house would have required the removal of 62% of the home’s existing roof, and part of the addition would have been visible from the street. At a virtual hearing Wednesday, the HDLC unanimously dunked the request after expressing concern about the “precedent” it would set for other properties in the historic district, home to some of the grandest houses in New Orleans.
Kevin Garnett just sold his massive Malibu property for $16 million bucks ... but the lucky buyer is gonna be shelling out even more dough -- 'cause the house isn't even finished!!! TMZ Sports has learned ... the NBA Hall of Famer purchased the estate when he was with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2003, but decided to start a massive renovation project in 2013.

Former Orlando Magic player Victor Oladipo has bought a shopping center in MetroWest as retail real estate remains hot in Central Florida. Oladipo's VO Spv Real Estate LLC spent $7.6 million to buy Metro Station at 2252 S. Kirkman Road on June 7, Orange County records showed. Metro Station Shopping Center LLC was the seller.
After selling their luxury Miami Beach, FL, condo on the exclusive Fisher Island for $16.25 million in February, the tennis great Caroline Wozniacki and the former NBA All-Star David Lee have made another move. However, the athletic couple didn’t venture too far afield. Instead, they snapped up the last unit in the same high-end building for $18.7 million. Their latest purchase in the Palazzo Del Sol is a penthouse, which spans 6,644 square feet and features four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and a rooftop oasis.
Retired NBA star Dwyane Wade has sold his Miami Beach estate for $22 million, nearly two years after putting it on the market for $32.5 million. Mr. Wade bought the property in 2010 for $10.645 million and renovated it, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Milwaukee Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer has purchased a condominium unit in the Historic Third Ward for $1.1 million, according to state records. Budenholzer bought a bi-level condo on the top floor of the Marine Terminal Lofts, at 311 E. Erie St. The 3,043-square-foot, three-bedroom unit features a large outdoor deck, a foyer opening to an “entertaining nirvana,” and exotic Tigerwood floors, according to online listings.
With a $103 million contract under his five-time All-Star belt — plus the looming prospect of his upcoming free agency — Kawhi Leonard can afford to live anywhere he pleases. But the Rolls Royce-driving Clippers baller has chosen to splash out $17.1 million in L.A.’s sunny Pacific Palisades neighborhood, on a luxe if somewhat conservatively styled mansion atop a promontory, where the panoramic ocean views are guaranteed to wow his guests.
Of course, the 29-year-old Moreno Valley native is no stranger to big real estate splurges. Leonard still owns a sumptuous estate in the equestrian-oriented San Diego suburb of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., acquired in 2019 for $13.3 million. And during basketball season, he bunks up in a $6.7 million condo at the ritzy Ritz Carlton Residences at L.A. Live, the skyscraper condo complex that sits high above the Staples Center, and where other moneyed residents include fellow pro basketballer Lonzo Ball, Lakers owner Jim Buss, and horror movie maestro Jason Blum.
Cousins, who spent most of his basketball career with the Sacramento Kings, paid $6.5 million for the vaguely Mediterranean mansion four years ago. The estate reached its peak value a year before the 2008 market crash, selling for $12 million in 2007, records show.
Michael Jordan hasn’t slam-dunked a buyer on his Illinois mansion in its nine years on the market, The Post has learned. Jordan, 58, purchased the Highland Park estate with his wife at the time, Juanita Vanoy, in 1991 for $2 million – the same year he won his first of six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls.
Jordan initially listed the 7-acre home in 2012 for a whopping $29 million. But without any offers, the nine-bedroom, 16-bathroom abode is now on the market for $14,855,000. In 2013, one year after the property first hit the market, the price fell to $21 million. It was then relisted the same year for $16 million. Jordan has not budged on a new price since it hit $14.8 million in 2015.
The San Fernando Valley neighborhood has housed plenty of Lakers over the years including Derek Fisher and Nick Young. Schroder’s spot first hit the market last summer at $4.5 million, records show.
The home, owned by KL7 Inc., a nod to Lowry’s uniform number, was put on the market about a month ago, only days before the Raptors announced they’ll play the remainder of their 72-game schedule in Tampa, Fla., where they’ve been playing “home” games at Amalie Arena since the season began in December. Currently playing out the final year of his contract, Lowry’s NBA future remains uncertain.
Wanna live like a King? You can buy the enormous Brentwood mansion LeBron James called home ... if you're willing to drop $20 mil! The NBA superstar has listed the 9,500-square-foot estate he purchased back in 2015 -- a colonial-style mansion on Rockingham Ave. And, if that street sounds familiar ... it's because of the O.J. Simpson connection. Bron's home is actually just a few blocks from the infamous Rockingham estate where O.J. lived when Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were murdered in 1994.
Three months after being traded to the Lakers, Dennis Schroder has found a place to stay. Records show the German-born point guard just spent $4.275 million on contemporary home in Tarzana — about 20 miles from Staples Center. The San Fernando Valley neighborhood has housed plenty of Lakers over the years including Derek Fisher and Nick Young. Schroder’s spot first hit the market last summer at $4.5 million, records show.
The extraordinary spaciousness of Amar’e Stoudemire’s South Florida mansion is perhaps unsurprising given that its current owner stands six foot ten inches tall. But now, someone else will have the chance to live under its soaring ceilings, because the former NBA star and six-time All-Star has put the ultraprivate 2.3-acre property on the market for $3.5 million. With doorways that measure 10 feet in height, the home appears from the outside to have several levels, but in actuality, Stoudemire sought out the property more than a decade ago specifically because it’s a single-story home. “We just wanted a nice family-style home with no stairs,” his wife Alexis told Architectural Digest in 2017. “Basically a sanctuary for us to get away from everything.’
In his home state of Florida, basketball veteran Amar’e Stoudemire is asking $3.5 million for his custom king-sized home. The big man, who racked up six all-star nominations as a member of the Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks, paid $3.7 million for the property a decade ago, records show.
After five seasons in the front office for the NBA's Sacramento Kings, the former NBA center Vlade Divac was shown the door in August 2020. Now Divac is divesting his real estate holdings in the capital city. He's put his downtown Sacramento home on the market for $1.65 million.
Divac purchased the downtown digs in April 2018 for $910,000 in the middle of his tenure as the general manager of the Kings. He's also lived in the neighboring Sacramento County town of Carmichael. In 2016, Carmichael's Chamber of Commerce named him "Person of the Year." His former residence in Pacific Palisades recently sold again in November, for $3,436,000. He had purchased the property in 2004 for $2.5 million and sold it in 2015 for $2,711,500.
Tristan Thompson looks to be parting with his Ohio home as well. The home, which resides along the water in the village of Bratenahl, is on the market for $3.25 million, a big leap from what Thompson paid in 2015, which was $1.9 million, reported, making the home the most expensive in Bratenahl.
It took some patience — six long months of patience — but Paul “PG-13” George has finally managed to unload his mammoth mansion out in guard-gated Hidden Hills, deep within L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. The 1.35-acre property went for $8.4 million, a cut under the $9.5 million asking price but still significantly more than the $7.4 million paid back in 2016 by the NBA baller and his longtime partner, former stripper Daniela Rajic.
Noah took a substantial loss on the Bannockburn house, which he bought for $1.5 million in 2008. He listed the house for $1.44 million in September and then cut his asking price to $1.37 million in October.
New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton reportedly has sold his luxury Charlotte, N.C. condo to a new starring attraction in the city. Charlotte Hornets 2020 first-round pick LaMelo Ball has purchased the ex-Carolina Panthers QB's former home for nearly $3 million, per Panthers beat reporter Sheena Quick. The condo had been on the market since July.
According to the listing, the 3,335 square-foot space has three bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms. NBA legend and Hornets owner Michael Jordan owns the seventh floor of the building, per the Charlotte Observer.
About a year and a half after the Rockets traded him away, basketball star Chris Paul has wrapped up his business in Houston, selling a modern mansion on the west side of the city. The sale price was not disclosed, but records show the All-Star point guard was itching to sell. A month after the Rockets dealt him to the Thunder, he listed the property for $8.3 million and trimmed the price three times over the next year. It was most recently offered at $7.2 million.
About a year and a half after the Houston Rockets traded him away, basketball star Chris Paul has wrapped up his business in Houston, selling a modern mansion on the west side of the city. The sale price was not disclosed, but records show the All-Star point guard was itching to sell.
A month after the Rockets dealt him to the Oklahoma City Thunder, he listed the property for $8.3 million and trimmed the price three times over the next year. It was most recently offered at $7.2 million. Paul picked up the place in April 2018, which was a few months before he signed a $160-million extension with the Rockets that would’ve keep him in Houston for the next four years.
Around a week after agreeing to a max deal with the Miami Heat, Bam Adebayo surprised his mom with a new house for her birthday. Via Instagram, Adebayo posted photos of himself and his mom inside the house. Most NBA players have a very special relationship with their mothers. Adebayo joins a good chunk of players who have gifted their mothers for everything they’ve done.
Deron Williams, formerly of the Brooklyn Nets, has finally sold his Tribeca penthouse at 35 North Moore St. for less than half its original asking price. Williams paid $15.8 million for the glam pad in 2013 and then made a splash, listing it for $33.5 million in 2015. But it took a pandemic — and multiple price slashes — before it finally found a buyer, who loved its massive size and COVID-friendly outdoor spaces.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Kyle Korver is looking to pass his Santa Barbara, CA, home to a new owner for $3,995,000. The SoCal native purchased the retreat in 2012 for $1.5 million. The “incredibly renovated” hillside home has four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and 3,960 square feet of living space. The contemporary home features muted tones of gray and beige.
Former NBA sixth man of the year Ben Gordon is selling his home court in Encino, listing the modern two-story for $2.9 million. The basketball veteran stands to make a nice little profit if he gets his price; records show he dropped $2.6 million on the property when it was newly built in 2017.
The home, which was built in 2005 and last traded hands for about $3 million in 2013, sits on a quarter of an acre above Benedict Canyon. Juliet balconies line the front of the house, and listing photos show a basketball hoop perched above the three-car garage. Inside, five bedrooms and six bathrooms are spread across 6,200 square feet.
Vanessa Bryant, wife of late Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, is asking $1.995 million for an investment home she owns in Irvine. She and Kobe bought it back in 2013, records show. Found a few miles away from her main residence in Newport Coast, the single-story abode is tucked into a cul-de-sac in the gated community of Summit at Turtle Ridge.

Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn't rule out playing for the Bulls in the future

Fox 32 Chicago Sports: Giannis on playing for the #Bulls someday tonight on The Sports Zone on Fox 32 Chicago. @fox32news @foxkickoff @LouCanellis @CassieCarlsonTV @Giannis_An34

“I think anyone asked that question who plays basketball, if he said no, he’d be a liar. It’s a team that won multiple championships, a team with one of the greatest players, if not the greatest player to ever play this game. It’s a no-brainer, everybody would love to play for Chicago. Down the line, you never know. You never know how life brings it. Maybe I play for Chicago,” Antetokounmpo said. “But right now, I’m committed to Milwaukee.”

Lakers to open season vs. Warriors

Clippers coach Tyronn Lue is unbeaten in seven games against the Lakers since taking over two seasons ago, while it will be Lakers coach Darvin Ham’s first meeting of arena tenants since his hiring in May. The game will be the Clippers’ season opener, while the Lakers will open two days earlier, on Oct. 18, at defending champion Golden State, according to a person with knowledge of the schedule.
On Sunday, Durant sent a tweet hinting that he’s going to delete his account on the platform amid the talks that it is ruining his legacy. However, he has since deleted the post. What’s interesting is Kevin Durant sent it out after people kept criticizing him for being the culprit in the current state of the player empowerment era in the NBA. A lot of players seem to be abusing that power to get out of situations they don’t like despite signing their contracts and teams paying them tons of money.
