Steve Nash, former Phoenix Suns player and two-time league MVP, has put his Paradise Valley mansion up for sale, asking $4.15 million.
Even at full price, though, it won't cover the $4.8 he paid in April for a much smaller home in Manhattan Beach, California -- which he reportedly wants to tear down. Three L's rule of real estate.
Canada is definitely out.
Nash, one of the most beloved Suns players of the 2000s, was a first-round draft pick in 1996 for the team, playing for two years before leaving for the Dallas Mavericks. When he came back to the Suns in 2004, having been offered a $63 million contract for six years of play, he bought the 6,500-square-foot home at 6602 East Indian Bend Road in the gated Judson Estates neighborhood for $3.8 million.
The Los Angeles Times first reported the home listing on Wednesday, describing the place as, "Divided across three wings, the nearly 6,500 square feet of living space includes a living room with a stone fireplace, a library, a game room, a wine cellar, five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms."
Nash played with the Suns until 2012, when he left for the Los Angeles Lakers. He's been plagued by back pain lately, though, and is getting paid big bucks this season to sit on the sidelines. Some fans were angered yesterday after he posted a video on Instagram of himself hitting a golf ball at a driving range.
