Looks like Deron Williams is trying to make up for his buyout on the real estate market.
Williams originally bought his TriBeCa penthouse in 2013 for $15.8 million in January 2013, midway through the Nets’ first season in Brooklyn. But two years, two disappointing playoff exits, and a $27.5 million buyout later, Williams is Dallas-bound… and his penthouse is back on the market, with a pricy uptick, per the New York Post:
We hear Williams is putting the 6,800-square-foot apartment, which he bought for $15.8 million through Town Residential in 2013, on the market with Douglas Elliman’s Andrew Azoulay — for an eye-popping $33.5 million.
$33.5 million! More than double what he paid for it. That’s quite a jump, even for a penthouse that was reportedly looked at by Sean “Diddy, or whatever his name is this week” Combs.
If Williams fetches his asking price for the penthouse, he’ll net a profit of $17.7 million — more than the $15.6 million he agreed to give up in the buyout agreement with the Nets reached earlier this month.
If you have $33.5 million lying around and are into the idea of owning an NBA player’s former penthouse, here’s some more on the digs, from the original Douglas Elliman listing:
This sprawling, light-filled penthouse is truly the ideal TriBeCa trophy apartment. Perched atop the Merchant’s House on TriBeCa’s premier block, the duplex six-bedroom home is comprised of over 6,800 square feet complemented by 3,000 square feet of private outdoor gardens (PHAC is a combination of two apartments, thereby resulting in 1,200 square feet of additional, bonus living space linking the northern and southern wings dedicated for the exclusive use of the penthouse apartment owner). As you enter the loft via direct keyed elevator access, custom designed John Houshmand benches accent the gallery-like entry hallway. The north wing of the home features the grand, contemporary great room with 17′ ceilings and 50′ of floor-to-ceiling windows and a continuous skylight overhead. Sitting areas are complemented by a gas fireplace, wet bar and integrated surround sound. From the great room’s sliding glass doors, the Japanese garden landscaped by Shin Abe completes the serene, airy space. An exquisite custom-made floating staircase leads to the two bedrooms in this wing, both open and bright with en suite baths. The restaurant-grade kitchen is stainless steel from top to bottom and features a commercial range and dishwasher, two industrial refrigerators, Hafele storage and more. Flanking the kitchen is both a spacious china closet and oversized climate controlled wine room.

Williams has yet to speak publicly, on social media or in a press conference, since shortly after Brooklyn’s Game 6 loss to the Hawks in the playoffs this past season.
