It took five years, multiple price cuts and a stunt tied to the Olympics but Bulls great Scottie Pippen has landed a buyer for his suburban Highland Park mansion.

The 10,000-square-foot estate that includes an indoor basketball court is in contract, according to the Chicago Tribune. The home is listed for $1.99 million.

The home went on the market in 2016, at just under $3.1 million before several price cuts. Last month, Pippen reduced it a final time to just under $2 million.

The Bulls champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist put the home on Airbnb in the leadup to the Tokyo Olympics. He offered the property at a symbolic rate of $92 per night, a reference to Pippen’s 1992 Olympic gold.

Pippen and his then-wife bought the house in 2004 for $2.23 million. In addition to the court, the home includes an infinity pool with a waterslide and waterfall. There is also a movie theater that seats eight.

Meanwhile, house neighbor and former teammate Michael Jordan is still trying to sell his far pricier Highland Park mansion. The 30,000-square-foot estate has been on the market for more than decade. It is listed at $14.8 million, according to Redfin, and is the most expensive home on the market in Highland Park.
