How low can Chris Paul go?

The former Los Angeles Clippers point guard has cut the price of his Bel Air mansion by $2 million as he looks to unload his L.A. digs — perhaps looking to consolidate his real estate closer to his new team, the Houston Rockets.

Originally listed for $11.50 million, Chris Paul’s 12,184-square-foot retreat has been on and off the market since July 2016. He dropped the price again last week to $9.25 million.

The eight-bedroom, 11-bathroom house features an outdoor living area with a pool, a 500-bottle wine cellar, a 12-seat home theatre and a gym with a sauna. This two-story Mediterranean residence is also equipped with a commercial elevator, Crestron sound automation and a camera system.

Paul snagged the property from singer Avril Lavigne for roughly $8.50 million in 2012 – $1 million less than the price she paid in 2007.

Ikem Chukumerije of Westside Premier Estates holds the listing, Los Angeles Times reported.

Paul played point guard for Los Angeles Clippers for six years and recently signed a contract with Houston Rockets. He has been selected to nine NBA All-Star teams. [LAT] – Naiwen Tian
