Houston Rockets star Dwight Howard has put his Florida waterfront mansion up for sale and is offering it for $4.9 million,according to realtor.com.
Howard's luxury pad, built in 2008 and known as 'Chateau D’Usse', cost the eight-time NBA All-Star a reported $7.78 million, meaning he could be set to make quite a hefty loss on the property.
The mansion boasts 11,025 square feet, five bedrooms and seven bathrooms and is situated in the suburban city of Longwood in Seminole County.
28-year-old Howard, a former three-time defensive player of the year, represented the Orlando Magic for eight years between 2004-12 after being drafted by the Florida franchise with the first overall pick of the draft.
He became the cornerstone and figurehead of the Magic during that time, but eventually left Amway Center for the bright lights of the Los Angeles Lakers as part of a blockbuster trade that also involved the Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets.
The Georgia native's time in LA was blighted by injury problems, however, and he exited Staples Center after just one season to join the Rockets.
His form has settled in Texas after an eventful couple of years, with Howard averaging an impressive 18.8 points and 9.1 rebounds per game so far this season alongside the likes of James Harden and Chandler Parsons as the Rockets sit fifth in the Western Conference with a record of 35-17.
Kevin McHale's crew recorded a comfortable 107-89 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night and will look to extend their six-game winning streak at home to John Wall and the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
