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.’

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.

Chris Paul sells Houston mansion

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.

It’s been a great month for JaVale McGee. Just a few days after winning an NBA championship with the Lakers, the big man has sold his Encino home of five years for $2.49 million. He’ll walk away with a profit of about $70,000 compared with 2015, when he bought the Mediterranean-style retreat from Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Marc Anthony for $2.42 million. Designed for entertaining, the secluded property is tucked behind two sets of gates and centers on a three-story home of nearly 6,300 square feet. Out back, palm trees and string lights top a resort-style space with a swimming pool, spa, gazebo, shower room and cabana with a bar.

Although the deal was extensively reported in July, it’s only today — fittingly, near the end of a fantastic Lakers season — that LeBron James has finally closed on his $36.8 million residential upgrade in the 90210, a multi-structure compound packing fantastic views and a storied, only-in-Hollywood pedigree. Built in the 1930s, the colorful Mediterranean-esque villa was owned for years by Charles Boyer, an Oscar-nominated leading man actor of that era who starred in a number of black-and-white classics, among them “Conquest” and “Algiers.”

Shaquille O’Neal, after opening a chicken sandwich shop near the Strip, has bought a house in Las Vegas, records indicate. The 7-foot-1-inch basketball Hall of Famer, known for his powerful dunks, lousy free throws and even worse movies, purchased a home in the Southern Highlands community, at the southern tip of the valley, early this year before the coronavirus pandemic upended daily life across the U.S., property records indicate. The $765,000 sale closed Feb. 19.

Gordon Hayward has a sprawling $3 million mansion in Indiana that sits on nearly seven acres — with a pool, wine cellar and every fancy bell and whistle a house can boast. A grand 2-story entryway, outdoor kitchen, hearth room, theater and ornate woodwork spread throughout. Hayward bought the home in July 2019 from D10 Investments, LLC, for $3 million, according to public records. The former Butler basketball standout and Celtics star has a home in Boston, too. Earlier this year, he was the owner of a third property, a massive Rancho Santa Fe, California, estate worth $3.9 million, but he sold that in March.

It looks like the luxury real estate market is still hot in the San Francisco Bay Area. NBA forward Andre Iguodala, previously with the Golden State Warriors and now attached to the Miami Heat, has let go of his mansion in Lafayette, CA. Designed by architect Ken Hertel, the Tuscan-style build was sold in just six weeks. For the athlete, selling quickly may have been more important than making a profit. He purchased the home in 2017 for $3.6 million, and just sold it for $3.65 million.

Orlando Magic shooting guard Evan Fournier and his wife, Laura, have picked up a chic estate in Winter Park, FL, for $2.9 million. The NBA player scored a deal. The Winter Park Chain of Lakes property had been listed earlier in the year for $3.25 million, and had then been dropped to $3.15 million in May, before the Frenchman grabbed it. Overlooking the picturesque Lake Maitland, this sweet pad features timeless design in a convenient neighborhood close to downtown, about a 15-minute drive to the Amway Center, where the Magic normally plays home games.

Basketball big man DeMarcus Cousins is looking to cash out in Las Vegas, listing his 20,000-square-foot showplace for $8 million. Records show the four-time All-Star, who sat out this season with a torn ACL, bought the home through a corporate entity three years ago for $6.5 million. A few miles west of the Las Vegas Strip, the amenity-loaded mansion offers a world of entertainment across nearly two acres. A circular driveway is capped by a porte-cochere entry at the front of the estate, which takes in sweeping views of the surrounding mountains.

In Bel-Air, the striking home built for basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain has resurfaced with a reduced price tag of $14.9 million, or about $4 million shy of what it originally sought in 2018. Like the basketball star himself — who holds the record for most points scored in an NBA game at 100 — the house possesses a near-mythical quality. Chamberlain had the home built in the ’70s, and it became known as Ursa Major, the star constellation home to the Big Dipper — one of Chamberlain’s many nicknames.

Doc Rivers, a former NBA All-Star player and championship coach, who since 2013 has been the head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers, is looking to shake up his real estate portfolio, quietly listing a beachfront home in Malibu for nearly $13 million. The house was once owned by TV exec Don Ohlmeyer and leased by Backstreet Boy Nick Carter. Property records indicate the former point guard, who led the Clippers to the playoffs last year but lost in six games to the Golden State Warriors, purchased the Spanish-style residence in 2017 for a bit more than $9.5 million. A quick comparison with online listings at the time of his purchase show the four-bedroom and 5.5-bathroom home, located in a prestigious guard-gated enclave, was subsequently renovated in a relaxed, contemporary style that offers panoramic coastline and endless ocean and sunset views.

Jordan Farmar, a former NBA player and two-time champion with the Los Angeles Lakers, loves calling Las Vegas his home for the last six years. He now has a hand in building his own. The Los Angeles native, his wife, Jill, a former professional soccer player, and their two daughters will be moving into their new home in Southern Highlands in May. Domanico Custom Homes is constructing the home valued at $3.5 million, and Farmar and his new carpentry skills have helped it along.

The 33-year-old Farmar, who is retired from the NBA, lives in Southern Highlands in a home he has occupied for the last few years. Before that, Farmar bought the 2016 New American Home in MacDonald Highlands in Henderson, which was showcased at the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas. He lived there for less than a year before moving back to Southern Highlands in a 4,000-square-foot home. “I moved to Vegas (as a tax shelter) while I was still playing,” Farmar said. “The more we stayed out here, the more we fell in love with it and the less I wanted to be in Los Angeles. Now I don’t like to go there at all. I go there and handle my business and come back as soon as possible.”

Meyers Leonard’s Oregon residence listed for $3M. Have you ever wanted to live in a mansion? Have you ever wanted to live in a house a Trail Blazer used to call home? Is your answer yes to both questions? Well, you’re in luck. If you have an extra $3 million laying around, you can take a mansion off of Meyers Leonard’s hands. The house, all 7,934 square feet if it, is nothing short of a dream home.

While the NBA is on hiatus, former Thunder star Russell Westbrook found time to wrap up some business back in Oklahoma. His single-story home, which he bought shortly after joining the team in 2008, just sold for $426,900. The nine-time All-Star, who now plays for the Houston Rockets, has purchased plenty of real estate since then. In 2015, he bought a Beverly Crest abode from Scott Disick for $4.65 million and upgraded again three years later, nabbing a Brentwood mansion near LeBron James for $19.75 million. This one’s a bit more modest at just over 3,000 square feet. It sits on a landscaped lot in Edmond, a suburban city a few miles north of the Thunder stadium.

Briefly with the Cleveland Cavaliers and now balling for the Utah Jazz, former L.A. Laker Jordan Clarkson seeks $3.35 million for a fairly recently purchased home in L.A.’s proto-suburban Woodland Hills community. The 6’4” guard purchased the then brand-spanking new house not even two years ago for a wee bit less than $3.2 million. Described in listings held by Zeev Perez at Keller Williams as a Cape Cod style home, the roughly 5,800-square-foot, family-sized structure is set behind a low fence and electronic driveway gates with five bedrooms and five full and two half bathrooms.

In contrast to a number of teammates who’ve bought properties in the Milwaukee space, Pat Connaughton has gone a step additional: He is tearing down a dilapidated duplex so he can substitute it with a four-story house constructing. “I’ll attempt to personal this endlessly,” Connaughton, 27, stated on a current morning as he stepped inside the husk of the outdated duplex at the nook of North Milwaukee and East Knapp streets, simply a few blocks from Fiserv Discussion board, the place the Bucks play their residence video games.

However Connaughton might see the future: a three-unit constructing full of recent facilities topped by a 3,132-square-foot penthouse, which he plans to make his residence. Need to be his neighbor? Connaughton goes to hire out the different two models. (Bucks workers can count on a low cost.) He hopes to finish the undertaking by midsummer. If the Bucks win a championship, the parade can launch from his new pad. “I’ll have a housewarming occasion to kick it off,” Connaughton stated.

Connaughton has been constructing a second profession in actual property via his improvement firm, Seashore Home LLC, which is a household affair. His father, Len, is the vp, and Joe Stanton, a childhood good friend, is the director of undertaking administration. The corporate owns 4 properties and bought two others in Portland, Ore., the place Connaughton spent three seasons taking part in for the Path Blazers. Seashore Home additionally owns three properties and bought one other in South Bend, Ind., the place Connaughton was a two-sport star at Notre Dame. And in Milwaukee, he has two initiatives in the works, together with the house constructing close to the enviornment. Connaughton bought the property, which had been vacant for months, for $325,000, and he expects the rebuild to price a further $800,000.

Curry, who signed a $201 million, five-year contract in 2017, snapped up a condo in the Four Seasons Private Residences at 706 Mission St., a new tower opening in June across from Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The price for the 2,800-square-foot condo the Currys bought was just under $8 million, according to real estate sources familiar with the unit and building. The unit is on the 30th floor — coincidentally, Curry wears No. 30 for the Warriors.

NBA fans know two things about Houston Rockets guard James Harden—his beard is legendary and he’s a prolific basketball scorer (he’s averaging 38.3 points per game this season). But that’s a drop in the bucket compared to the $10 million Houston mansion the All-Star scored. Harden’s estate, called Memorial Modern, took three years to build and spans 3.5 acres in Rivercrest, an exclusive enclave in suburban Houston. The 26,000-square-foot ultra-modern manse features a grotto, wine room, casita, prep kitchen, full bar and a fitness room. It’s crafted from commercial-grade steel with minimalist design elements.
