Tristan Thompson listed his Ohio waterfront mansion for $3.2 million after signing a contract with the Boston Celtics in November.
Thompson played nine seasons for the Cleveland Cavaliers before departing for Massachusetts.
The "impeccable" 6,424 square foot, 5-bedroom, 5 bath manse is located inside an exclusive gated community in Bratenahl, Ohio. Thompson purchased the property in 2015 for $1.9 million.
The house is the most expensive currently on the market in the community, which has a median home price of $425,000, according to Realtor.com.
The "owner's wing" -- which the "woke" no longer refer to as the "master bedroom" -- features a luxurious bathroom, a humongous walk-in closet, a sitting area and a balcony overlooking Lake Erie.
The second floor features an in-law suite with a second kitchen and private entrance. And on the third floor there's another guest suite with an office.
The finished daylight basement boasts a billiards room, a home theater, full bar, wine cellar, exercise room and another full bathroom.
Steve Harvey may be heading back to Atlanta. The 63-year-old TV mogul and noted relationship expert just purchased Tyler Perry's old mansion, with enough closet space for his wife Marjorie's 5,000 shoes.
According to TMZ, the Family Feud host purchased Perry's former Buckhead mansion for $15 million. The custom 35,000 sq. ft. home boasts 7 bedrooms and 11.5 baths on 17 manicured acres.
There is also a tennis court atop a multi-level parking garage with enough parking space for 20 cars.
If you recall, I told you Perry lost a boatload of money when he sold the same home for $17.5 million - a steep drop from his "firm" asking price of $25 million.
The buyer, according to RhymeswithSnitch, was mega-preacher David Turner.
The house, on the 4100 block of Paces Ferry Rd, is located near the prestigious and absurdly expensive Lovett School, which is closed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Dwyane Wade, 35, and Gabrielle Union, 47, recently listed their Mediterranean style villa in Sherman Oaks, California for $6.2 million. The Wades purchased the 8,700-square-foot crib in 2018 for $6 million.
The house features eight bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms, incredible mountain views, a grand spiral staircase, a home movie theater, and an Olympic size swimming pool.
The Wades moved out of the house 2 months ago after dropping a cool $18 million on a 22,000 square-foot, 7-bedroom manse in star-studded Hidden Hills, California. The house originally listed off market for $23 million.
Their neighbors in the exclusive guard-gated community include Drake, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, the Kardashians, Miley Cyrus, John Stamos, Matt LeBlanc, and more.
The Wades also own a Miami Beach mansion that they've been trying to unload for a year. The former NBA star listed the house for $23 million.
The 14,000 square foot, 6-bedroom home boasts a chef's kitchen, a full-service hair salon and a half basketball court.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama are catching heat on social media after they purchased a $12 million mansion in exclusive Martha's Vineyard.
The home is the latest multi-million dollar property in the Obamas' real estate portfolio. They also own mansions in Hawaii, California and Washington, D.C.
The opulent 6,892-square-foot home features seven bedrooms, eight-and-a-half bathrooms, a detached barn and a pool. The home faces the Edgartown Great Pond.
Some on Black Twitter are not comfortable with the Obamas' excessive displays of wealth.
One Twitter user wrote: "Obama sitting pretty in Marthas vineyard whilst Americans lost their homes due to his astounding incompetence. Bailed out wall street instead of the American people. d bag."
"Nothing sets a better example for the 'urgency' of 'climate change' than buying a $12,000,000 mansion on an island 'marthas vineyard' In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean all the while crying about the dangers of the rise of sea level. Obama did!"
But others defended the former First Couple.
"The Obamas are among the most successful black people in recent history & fools are out there upset that they're living about as well as your average white Tech executive."
