Now that he’s no longer with the Los Angeles Lakers, NBA forward Luol Deng wants to pass his Brentwood hillside home to a new owner for $7.45 million.
The two-time All-Star paid $6.15 million for the chic spec home when it came on the market in 2016, right after he signed an ill-fated contract with the Lakers.
The Lakers bought out his contract after two rough seasons, and Deng was picked up by the Minnesota Timberwolves in September 2018. With a new NBA address, Deng apparently wants to divest himself of this SoCal property.
The three-story home was designed to take in spectacular views of the canyon, city, and ocean. It sits on a terraced lot that measures over an acre and contains thoughtfully landscaped, drought-resistant vegetation.
The backyard includes an elevated pool and spa with an outdoor shower and an indoor bathroom nearby, and a spacious deck farther down the hillside.
All three levels of the home offer balconies or decks designed to accommodate California’s indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
One of the decks measures in at a massive 1,000 square feet, and features a fireplace, seating areas, and a pingpong table. But keep spare balls handy—retrieving wild serves at this elevation is arduous.
An abundance of floor-to-ceiling windows and folding doors let in plenty of natural light.
The 6,518-square-foot house has seven bedrooms (including two master suites), seven bathrooms, and an elevator.
The custom-designed chef’s kitchen is equipped with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, two dishwashers, and a waterfall-edge island.
The dining room has a handy, full-size wine refrigerator, an impressive modern chandelier, and its own patio with lawn access.
Other rooms of interest include a media room, gym, and ground-level guest quarters with its own bath and entrance.
The gated home has high-tech security features and a Sonos indoor-outdoor sound system.
Deng has also played for the Miami Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Chicago Bulls during his 15-year NBA career. The South Sudan native grew up in the U.K. and played college basketball at Duke.
