Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside closed on the $7.3 million purchase of a new Miami Beach home, sources told The Real Deal.

Whiteside, who signed a four-year, $98 million contract to stay with the Heat in June, bought the six-bedroom, 5,406-square-foot home at 528 Lakeview Court.

ONE Sotheby’s International Realty agent Barbara Lamar had the contemporary-style house on and off the market since 2015. At its peak, the waterfront home was listed for $13 million in February of last year and most recently for $7.95 million in June, according to Realtor.com. Darren Weiner, managing director of Douglas Elliman’s Sports & Entertainment Division, represented Whiteside. Both brokers declined to comment to TRD.

Records show Lewes, Delaware-based Venetian Coaster LLC sold the 17,676-square-foot property. It last traded for $5.9 million in 2012.

Built in 2014, the home features an open floor plan with a gourmet kitchen, pool, bar, summer kitchen, cabana, a guest house with a private entrance, staff quarters, and a large dock. LF Development built the house, according to its website. Borges + Associates Architects designed it, according to a spokesperson.

Whiteside is a new neighbor to Matthew Lazenby, president and CEO of Whitman Family Development, which owns Bal Harbour Shops. Jason Rubell and Michelle Simkins also own a property a couple of doors down, records show.

Whiteside’s coach, Erik Spoelstra, paid $2.6 million for a 5,400-square-foot house in Coconut Grove in late May.

A North Carolina native, Whiteside was drafted by the Sacramento Kings in 2010, played for a number of teams abroad and then joined the Heat in 2014.
