The NBA lockout is over, salaries are flowing again, and that only means one thing to real estate watchers – big-name NBA stars are making some big home purchases. It’s just been uncovered by the New York Post that Jason Kidd is the newest kid on the block in Southampton, NY. Although he spends the basketball season dribbling for the champion Dallas Mavericks, Kidd wanted an East Coast abode. He found it in the 5,500-square-foot, six-bedroom, six-bathroom home that was once rumored to be Jennifer Lopez’s first big post-Marc Anthony purchase.
Under contract with Kidd for $5,975,000, the home at 100 Flying Point Road in tony Water Mill, is located “just a bike ride to the Flying Point ocean beaches.” The home is custom-built with modern interior style designed around a clean lines, European fixtures, and a impeccable attention to detail.
