The Miami Heat went on a home buying frenzy this summer.
First Erik Spoelstra dropped $2.6 million on a historical home in Coconut Grove in June. Then Hassan Whiteside upgraded to a $7.3 million home on Miami Beach.
But the largest home purchased was by guard Tyler Johnson, who not only landed a $50 million deal this summer but also a Pinecrest mansion for $4.85 million, per the Miami Herald.
The 24-year-old’s new Mediterranean home stretches nearly 12,000 square feet, with six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. It features dual chef kitchens, a media room, entertaining room, advanced security system, elevator, and, of course, a half-court basketball court.
It last sold for $2.9 million in 2007 and listed for $5.285 million last December.
Johnson averaged a modest 8.7 points and 2.2 assists last season but was able to capitalize on a wild Free Agency market due to the NBA’s soaring salary cap after an infusion of new TV money.
The Brooklyn Nets offered him a backloaded $50 million deal over four years and the Heat decided to match the enormous offer for their talented restricted free agent. Johnson went undrafted out of Fresno State in 2010.
