After four seasons with the Phoenix Suns, Milwaukee Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe is ready to say goodbye to Arizona.
The dynamic scorer spent four playoff-free seasons in the desert before being traded to Milwaukee in 2017 following a controversial “I don’t want to be here” tweet, which forced Suns management to send him packing.
Although he may have had issues with the organization, it’s difficult to think he could find any fault with his Scottsdale digs. A sprawling, sun-drenched estate on a 1.87-acre lot, the home features 8,411 square feet of living space, including six bedrooms and 7.5 baths.
Listed for $4.2 million, the house is located in the tony Arcadia neighborhood. It’s fitted top to bottom with luxury details. We’re talking a resort-style pool with slide, open kitchen, home theater, and (of course) basketball court. Despite being tucked away in a private cul-de-sac, the house is still close to Scottsdale’s top restaurant and shopping options.
Born and raised in Birmingham, AL, Bledsoe was listed as a five-star recruit while shining for Parker High School in his hometown. He caught the eye of the University of Kentucky, where the 6-foot-1 point guard would excel in his freshman year.
However, his Wildcat tenure was short—after his first year of college, Bledsoe declared for the NBA draft. He began his career with the Los Angeles Clippers. His career got off to a strong start despite playing behind All-Star Chris Paul. He participated in the Slam Dunk Contest at the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. After three seasons in SoCal, he was traded to Phoenix.
The property listing is being handled by Cherise Mister of HomeSmart.
