The former Los Angeles Clipper, now Houston Rocket Chris Paul moved on from his estate in the guard-gated Bel Air Crest community after just four years, the Los Angeles Times reported. Paul paid $8.5 million for the residence, listed it for $11.5 million, and settled for (a mere) $8.7 million.

Entering the house, guests are met by a two-story foyer and striking hardwood floors in a herringbone pattern.
Paul’s private, eight-bedroom mansion was separated from neighbors by "tall privacy hedges" on either side, and appears to have no rear neighbors.
The house has been updated since Paul bought it. Its clean, white interiors include a 16-seat theater, a 10-car garage, 11 bathrooms, and a gym with sauna.
The master bedroom is like a little house unto itself, with its own sitting room, fireplace, and kitchenette. The bedroom also features large dual closets and bathrooms.
Tall sliding glass doors open onto the rear yard, which contains a pool and spa, and looks out onto a canyon.
