When players leave teams they sell up, move out, and invest in the city in which they now take the court, so it’s no surprise that when Corey (aka Cornelius) Maggette moved to the Charlotte Bobcats after nine years in Los Angeles with the Clippers, his house in Westchester (between LAX and Marina Del Rey) would also change hands.
No stranger to packing boxes, Maggette was originally drafted by the Seattle Supersonics before being traded to the Orlando Magic who later traded him to the Clippers.
In a rare occurrence these days, Maggette realized a small profit, selling for $1.85m in 2011 what he picked up for $1.78m in 2008. The 4,800 sq.ft. Mediterranean-style home on Ocean Bluff Drive comes with a screening room and guesthouse, and each of the five bedrooms has its own bathroom. At 4,800 sq.ft., the cul-de-sac lot is reportedly one of the largest in the neighborhood.
