Former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning has purchased a Pinecrest mansion for $4.5 million.
The popular longtime Heat center and his wife, Tracy Wilson Mourning, on Oct. 3 acquired the residence at 6342 SW 109th St. The sellers were Jose A. Rodriguez and Deydre M. Reyes.
Miami-Dade County recorded the transaction last Wednesday.
Rodriguez and Reyes paid $2.63 million for the house in July 2009, according to county records.
The two-story, 9,786-square-foot residence was built in 2008 on a 0.89-acre site. It has six bedrooms and 7Â½ bathrooms.
The Mournings also own a mansion within the Gables Estates neighborhood of Coral Gables. The couple paid $12.75 million in November 2005 for the waterfront residence at 33 Arvida Parkway.
Engel & VÃ¶lkers is currently marketing 33 Arvida Parkway for sale with an asking price of $14 million.
Mourning's 15-year NBA career was highlighted by two Defensive Player of the Year awards, seven All-Star Game selections and a championship in 2006 with the Heat. His career was threatened by kidney disease and a 2003 kidney transplant, but "Zo" was able to resume playing the following year. Mourning retired in 2009.
The Mournings are involved in numerous charitable causes, most notably the youth-oriented Alonzo Mourning Charities Inc. Earlier this month, Mourning joined the Heat on a preseason trip to China.
