NBA superstar Kevin Garnett was known as a finisher on the basketball court, but he’s bowing out early in Malibu.

The 42-year-old retired star is shopping a seven-acre property with a half-finished mansion in the beachside city for $19.9 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Listing photos show an 11,000-square-foot mansion under construction on the three-parcel property. The home is reportedly a year away from completion, with room for a buyer to customize portions of it.

The home has ocean views and sits across the Pacific Coast Highway from the Pacific Ocean. It also has a huge motor court, pool, and spa.

He purchased the property in 2003 for $6.4 million, the same year he won the NBA Most Valuable Player award while playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves. At the time, the property held a six-bedroom home.

L.A. is a popular destination for NBA players, even those like Garnett who have never played for either the Lakers or the Clippers.

Andrei Kirilenko owned a property in Bel Air before it was burned down in the Skirball fire in late 2017.  David Lee is another former NBA player with L.A. real estate — he’s shopping three condominiums at the Sierra Towers in West Hollywood for a combined $22.5 million.

And of course, LeBron James, who owns two homes in Brentwood, is now suiting up for the Lakers. [Los Angeles Times]Dennis Lynch
