NBA star Kevin Durant is making a move—at least on the real estate front. The free agent forward has let go of his Malibu, CA, home for $12.15 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Durant has reportedly turned down his $31.5 million contract option with the Golden State Warriors, so he's set to become an unrestricted free agent. That means that, along with leaving his property, he's free to leave the West Coast for any team willing to pony up a multiyear, multimillion-dollar deal.
The future Hall of Famer, who is 30, suffered an Achilles tendon injury during the NBA playoffs and is likely to be off the court for the entirety of the 2019-20 season. However, he is still active in the real estate game.
Durant used a limited liability company to pick up the beach house in April of last year for a little over $12 million. Although the high-scoring forward placed the vacation spot on the market for $13.5 million, it appears he's content to break even on the transaction.
Located just off Broad Beach, the remodeled home offers ocean views on a private, gated street. Inside, the home, built in 1976, offers four bedrooms and six bathrooms in 5,136 square feet of living space.
The layout features vaulted ceilings and an open floor plan with disappearing glass walls opening to water views.
Along with French oak flooring, the great room comes with a fireplace, ocean-view dining table, and kitchen with Calacatta marble.
Other perks include a massage and exercise loft, library, media room, and wine wall.
Before joining the Golden State Warriors in 2016, Durant starred for years with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
In 2016, while summering in the Hamptons, the baller hosted Warrior greats Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala, who persuaded him to come to the San Francisco Bay Area. After agreeing to join forces with the Warriors, Durant and the squad became known as the "Hamptons 5" and went on to win two NBA championships.
Durant is now recovering from surgery in New York, and rumors continue to fly that he'll be headed to New York—to sign with the Knicks or Brooklyn Nets.
Perhaps he should spend the summer in the Hamptons to consider his options. It certainly worked out the last time.
