Ah, it must be nice.
After signing a short-term deal with the Miami Heat this summer, forward Luol Deng has purchased a new South Florida home, according to this report by the L.A. Times.
The cost of the home is reportedly around $4.6 million. Sigh.
Here’s an additional description of the home:
The walled compound, built in 1928, occupies nearly three-quarters of an acre north of downtown Miami with a Mediterranean-style main residence, a two-story guesthouse, a pool, a boat dock with a lift and 107 feet of frontage on Biscayne Bay.
The purchase seems like a positive sign, considering that Deng’s deal, only for two years, has a player option at the end of this upcoming season. Some have speculated that Deng may play his way out his relatively budget-minded deal with Miami and seek a long-term deal next year.
Regardless, one hopes Deng’s neighbors are little more respectful of his private property than Ray Allen’s were this summer.
