Former NBA Guard Evan Turner Selling Portland, OR, Mansion for $3.2M

The former NBA player Evan Turner is ready to let go of his Portland, OR, home, the Oregonian reported.

After landing on the market earlier this month for $3.2 million, the baller mansion quickly attracted an offer and is already in pending sale status.

Now that Turner is an assistant coach for the Boston Celtics, the former guard with the Portland Trail Blazers has moved into a new phase of his career. He’s also moving on from his jaw-dropping contemporary residence.

Turner purchased the gated hilltop property while playing for the Trail Blazers in 2016. He paid $3.15 million, a discount from the original asking price of $3.5 million.

In 2017, his home made headlines when a semitruck hauling dirt crashed while navigating the steep street, and landed in his swimming pool.

Built in 2003, the dramatic design offers three levels, 7,890 square feet, and enviable city and Mount Hood views.

From the entrance, step down into the great room, which is surrounded by walls of windows that offer expansive views, as well as a fireplace and dining area. The kitchen dishes out an island with seating, light wood cabinets, and stainless-steel appliances, including a wine fridge. A breakfast nook adjoins the cook-prep area.

On the lower level, find a stylish lounge and wet bar with seating that adjoins a glassed-in wine room.

A master suite on the main level includes a fireplace and views. The home has three other bedrooms, and a total of 6.5 bathrooms.

Other features include a wood-paneled office, a home theater, mirrored gym, and multiple outdoor spaces. Both the living room and downstairs bar and lounge open onto sleek patios. Set on 0.67 acres, the perk-packed, resort-style space includes a pool and spa, as well as a sport court. The property also includes a two-car garage.

The Chicago-born athlete, who is 32, attended the Ohio State University, and was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2010 draft as the second overall pick. He also played for the Indiana Pacers, Celtics, and Atlanta Hawks, before retiring from the game in 2020. He currently serves as assistant coach for the Celtics.
