World champion Miami Heat star Shane Battier listed his Coconut Grove home for sale this week — but he’s not going anywhere!
A real estate source says sharpshooter Battier, who came under fire during the NBA playoffs for his lack of production, is buying a larger house a few miles away in Coral Gables.
It’s another Gossip Extra exclusive: Battier plunked down $1.6 million for the five-bedroom, six-bathroom digs in a Bonita Park section a year ago, and now it can be yours for $1.9 million!
Listing agent Linda Green would only confirm that Battier and wife Heidi are selling.
“It’s not my place to comment on why he’s leaving this location,” she said.
But Green’s boss, Realtor Mike Brunnberg, said Battier has a contract to buy another house in nearby Coral Gables. That transaction has not been finalized and has yet to appear on public records.
“My understanding is that he is not going anywhere,” Brunnberg said. “He’s just upgrading. He likes it here.”
