Russell Westbrook, point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers, has just dropped $37 million on a lavish new home in the city’s Brentwood neighborhood, directly across the street from his teammate LeBron James, Mansion Global has learned.
Mr. Westbrook, 33, quietly bought the property in an off-market deal from Formula 1 racing heiress Petra Ecclestone.
Given the off-market nature of the sale, details on the property are scarce.
When Ms. Ecclestone bought the home in 2019 for $22.7 million, Mansion Global wrote that the eight-bedroom, 11-bathroom pad sits on a half-acre lot with canyon views and has a home theater, a wine cellar and a spa. Outside there is a four-car garage and a private pool.
Sam Palmer, David Kramer and Barry Watts with Hilton & Hyland represented Ms. Ecclestone and Morgan Trent of Compass represented Mr. Westbrook in the sale.
Mr. Westbrook, who couldn’t be reached for comment, has played for the Lakers since last year. He’s a nine-time NBA All-Star and earned the NBA Most Valuable Player Award for the 2016–17 season, when he played for the Oklahoma City Thunder.
His teammate—and new neighbor—Mr. James, who has played for the Lakers since 2018, bought his Brentwood pad in 2017 for $23 million.
