The NBA retiree and his socialite wife just paid $4.5 million for new digs in Pinecrest, Gossip Extra has learned.

They paid cash, according to records, since they also sold their $13,000-square-foot, 8-bedroom mansion in Coral Gables  Oct. 11 for a tidy $11.35 million!

The former center’s new place on SW 109th Street is in a wooded area of the Miami suburb and boasts nearly an acre of tropical vegetation.

It’s got “just” six bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

There’s one thing the Mournings new place has that the other didn’t, however: A bidet in the master bathroom!

Mourning came to the Heat in 1996 after signing one of the NBA’s first $100 million-contracts.

He sat out the 2002-03 season so that he could undergo a kidney transplant after Mourning was diagnosed with a rare ailment.

He eventually returned to the team on time for the Heat’s first NBA championship in 2006, and retired for good in 2009. He’s now the team’s vice president of player development.
