Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic bought a Lincoln Park mansion, just over a year after he joined the team.

Vucevic, traded from the Orlando Magic in early 2021, paid $4.75 million in June for the 5,345-square-foot, six-bedroom home on Deming Place, the Chicago Tribune reported. The property was listed for $4.9 million in April.

The NBA player, who bought the home through a Florida-based limited liability company, was represented by money manager Jaafar Choufani and Chicago real estate agent Nancy Tassone.

The home, behind the Lincoln Park Twenty Five Fifty luxury high-rise on Lakeview Avenue, has access to the building’s amenities, including an adjoining 1.25-acre private park.

The four-story home, which has a roof deck as well as an attached, two-car garage, also comes with two additional parking spaces. The home has six bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a four-stop elevator and mudroom. The eat-in kitchen with custom cabinetry is equipped with high-grade appliances and a butler’s pantry. The primary bedroom suite has a bathroom with heated floors and a steam shower.

Earlier this month, a Lincoln Park mansion sold for $10 million, marking the priciest sale in the affluent neighborhood since 2021. The home at 2026 North Mohawk Street was bought in July and later sold by limited liability companies Mohawk Partners II and Mohawk Partners in an off-market transaction.

Last week, the CEO of Kellogg sold his 7,800-square-foot Lincoln Park mansion for $6.2 million in the Chicago area’s 30th deal this year for at least $6 million. The home, on a 30-by-125 lot that’s slightly larger than the standard 25-by-125 size, sold without coming to the public market.

The 2020 tax bill on the Deming Place property was $74,826.
