Chris Paul selling Southern California mansion for $11.5 million

Just a few years after dropping $9 million on a mansion in the upscale Southern California region of Calabasas, Houston Rockets star guard Chris Paul is putting the property back up for sale.

According to TMZ Sports, Paul has listed the 11,000 square foot property for a cool $11.5 million. This comes after Paul bought a massive mansion on the outskirts of Houston following his trade from the Los Angeles Clippers last summer.

It’s a clear indication that the pending free agent expects to re-sign with the Rockets after an otherwise stellar season came to a conclusion with Paul riding the pine to injury.

In the end, Houston fell to the defending champion Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals Monday evening.

As it relates to this property, it’s an absolute stunner. Inside the mansion, we’re looking at a home theater, a craft room, a library, a complete gym with steam showers and a sauna. Heck, the kitchen includes a pizza oven with a wine cellar.

Obviously, the property includes a basketball court, tennis court, fire pit, standalone bar and a pool in the backyard.

It’s pretty amazing.

Paul is reportedly already attempting to recruit LeBron James to team up with himself and James Harden in Houston. By listing his Southern California home, it’s a clear sign the future Hall of Fame guard is intent on returning to the Rockets for a second season.
