'Anthony Davis got duped': Lakers star sells Westlake Village mansion at a $1 million loss after purchasing it in 2018

Lakers star Anthony Davis has sold his mansion in Westlake Village, Los Angeles for $6.6 million recently.

The Lakers forward signed a contract extension worth $190 million over 5 years in December. This deal will keep him in Los Angeles till the fag end of a typical player’s prime. It will also make the financial loss he incurred in this sale moot.

AD bought this house in 2018 for a sum of $7.5 million. This deal sparked the very first rumors of the former Pelicans star demanding a trade to the Lakers. Davis followed up the move by signing with Klutch Sports, which fanned the rumors all the more.

LA Times writer gave a description of the opulent mansion, which has all the amenities a basketball superstar could wish for in his home:

“In addition to a movie theater, library and gym, there’s a full-size indoor basketball court with a scoreboard, skylights and a viewing box. A deck outside the court features a pair of slides that feed into a resort-style swimming pool below.”

“Between the main house and guesthouse, there’s nearly 16,000 square feet of living space with five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. High ceilings offer lots of headspace, especially in the voluminous rotunda-style foyer with massive windows and a dramatic sweeping staircase.”

“Upstairs, a spacious billiards room adds a wet bar and fireplace. It opens to one of multiple viewing decks that take in views of the canyons and golf course below.”
