NBA legend Tracy McGrady lists massive Texas house for $8M

0

Four days before he scored 33 points in 13 seconds on December 9, 2004, Tracy McGrady dropped $6.3 million on a Texas mega-mansion.

Now, in retirement, the NBA Hall of Famer is aiming for a slam dunk of a different kind, asking $8 million for that same Texas mega-mansion.

The nine-bedroom, 8½-bathroom Sugar Land home spans 23,650-square-feet — that’s more than half an acre! — with a full indoor basketball court.

The circular driveway leads to Cantera hand-forged iron doors, which open to a high-ceilinged foyer — perfect for a 6’8″ basketball player.

The foyer, where McGrady’s wife Clerenda recently posed for an Instagram picture, has an iron staircase and french limestone floors, according to the listing.
