It looks like it was all part of God’s plan.

Former Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers is selling his downtown Miami condo – a unit he purchased from rapper and producer Drake.

Chalmers, who played for the Heat between 2008 and 2015 and is now part of the Memphis Grizzlies, is set to sell the two-story, 5,475-square-foot unit for $2.3 million on Thursday, a spokesperson for Douglas Elliman told The Real Deal. Chalmers listed the five-bedroom condo in 2014 for $4 million and later took it off the market.  It was most recently asking $2.66 million.

Chalmers is selling the condo at a slight loss. Chalmers’ Team Rio LLC paid $2.4 million for unit 4905/4906 at Marquis, 1100 Biscayne Boulevard, in 2012. The duplex unit features marble and wood floors, a game room, wet bar and a large terrace. The 67-story building was completed in 2010.

The condo was also featured in Drake’s “I’m On One” music video in 2011, which included DJ Khaled sipping a Four Loko on the balcony. Drake recently filmed his “God’s Plan” video in Miami, giving away most of his $1 million budget.

Elliman’s John Sandberg with the Sandberg Nortmann Group represented the buyer, a Boston businessman. Denver Bright, previously with Elliman, represented Chalmers.
