Former LA Clippers star Chris Paul took care of some much-needed business now that he's on the books for the Houston Rockets: he finally sold his Bel Air mansion for a cool $8.7 million.
The All Star point guard was selling his 12,000-square-foot estate in the exclusive Bel Air Crest neighborhood for $9.2 million. Though he didn't get the full asking price, Paul still made a bit of a return on his original investment. Paul purchased the home from singer Avril Lavigne about a year after being acquired by the Clippers. He bought it for $8.4 million and came close to selling it last July, the Los Angeles Times reports, but the sale wasn't finalized.
Paul is also selling his Mediterranean-style house in Woodland Hills for $2.2 million. Both listings are being held by Ikem Chukumerije.
The mansion in Bel Air is loaded with entertaining options, including a 16-seat movie theater, subterranean wine cellar and billiards room. Outdoors there's a kitchen, lush lawn and a pool. The home also boasts an elevator, a gym with a sauna and a 10-car garage. Check it out:
