Chicago Bulls star Zach LaVine paid $34 million for an Orange County mansion with ocean views of Newport Beach.

LaVine purchased the 11,200-square-foot home in April, but California Listings only recently identified the NBA star as the buyer. The home sits in Pelican Crest, a gated community within Newport Coast. According to Orange City Business Journal, LaVine’s $34 million purchase is the most-ever spent on a home in Pelican Crest. 

Features of the mansion include six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, steam/spa showers, a fully updated kitchen with a butler prep area, a bar and lounge area, a home theater, a Full Swing golf simulator, a backyard with multiple styles of pools, and a private terrace with a built-in jacuzzi. 

LaVine, who averaged 24.8 points last season for the Bulls, can also take advantage of his new home’s indoor/outdoor gym area equipped with a PRX weight system, an infrared sauna, and areas for pilates and yoga. The workout area also has a Tonal, the AI-based strength training machine that’s garnered investments from stars such as LeBron James, Steph Curry, Paul George, Serena Williams, Mike Tyson, Sue Bird, and Drew Brees.

LaVine, 28, is set to make $40 million in salary this upcoming season, per Spotrac, as part of his 5-year, $215 million max contract he inked with the Bulls in 2022. He is set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2027, when he’ll be 32 years old. 

With his new home, the two-time All-Star moves closer to where he played college ball for two seasons at UCLA before he was selected 13th overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2014 NBA Draft.
