PINECREST — Lamar Odom, the former Miami Heat star who became a member of the Kardashian clan before his partying nearly killed him, has listed his Pinecrest home for sale.
Odom, who bought the place for just under $3 million in 2003 when he was traded to the Heat from the Los Angeles Clippers, wants $5.2 million for the 8,600-square-foot Mediterranean home at 9401 SW 63rd Court, according to real estate listings.
The house was barely occupied by Odom, who was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2004 in exchange for Shaquille O’Neal– a move was often credited for the Heat’s first national championship two years later.
Odom ended up renting out the property for $17,000 a month before putting on the market earlier this week.
For the kind of money that the 37-year-old Odom wants, a potential buyer would also get a world-class Jacuzzi tub, a lighted tennis court, a two-story entryway with frescoed ceilings and a master bathroom with a stream shower, among plenty of goodies.
He has not returned a call for comment.
Odom played a central role in two Lakers championships and at one point, he was considered one of the top sixth men in the NBA.
But Odom’s private wasn’t so sterling.
He started dating then married reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, earning him a spot on the reality fare Keeping Up With The Kardashians, then on his and Khloe’s spinoff.
The fishbowl situation, however, and lackluster performance on the court sent him into a tail spin. He hit rock bottom in 2015 when he turned up unconscious in a Nevada brothel after a bender.
Odom eventually recovered after months of medical treatment.
The Pinecrest neighborhood, meanwhile, has become packed with current and former NBA-ers.
Miami Heat guard Tyler Johnson lives around the corner in a $5 million house he bought last summer, and former Heat center Chris “Birdman” Andersen just listed his place for $4 million.
