Milwaukee Bucks star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo finalized the purchase of a $1.8 million mansion from former Bucks teammate Mirza Teletovic on Friday, Nov. 2.
Tom Daykin of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel provided details from the sale of the home, which is located in the River Hills neighborhood of Milwaukee County, WI, based on state property records.
The Realtor.com listing noted the massive house features five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms along with an in-ground pool, guest house, home theater, game room, wine cellar, heated garage, and workshop. It also described the mansion as “move-in ready.” The home is also said to possess a striking balance between old-world craftsmanship and the features of today’s buyer demands.
The home is 631 percent more expensive than nearby properties in the River Hills neighborhood. Teletovic purchased the house on Jan. 4, 2017, while he was a member of the Bucks alongside Antetokounmpo. Teletovic announced his retirement in September 2018, though, due to lingering health issues and accepted a position with the Bosnian Basketball Federation.
Teletovic, 33, spent the final two years of his six-year NBA career with the Bucks from 2016-2018 and also played for Brooklyn and Phoenix. He turned professional in 2002 and from 2002-2012, he played overseas in a number of leagues before being signed by Brooklyn on a three-year, $15.7 million deal.
The high price tag is no problem for Antetokounmpo—he is in the second season of a four-year, $100 million deal with Milwaukee and is considered one of the best players in the league.
