Sun to Sun: Former player Raja Bell sells Phoenix-area home to Alex Len
PHOENIX — In a move that sounds like a cute family story, current Phoenix Sun Alex Len has reportedly bought the Valley home of former player Raja Bell.
The real estate website’s original story about Bell putting the home on the market dates back to 2015, so the Cleveland Cavaliers player director had to wait a while to collect his big league paycheck. The listing said the home sold Dec. 30.
The home was listed at $2.5 million in 2015, so it’s possible Bell decided to give Len a Suns discount. Len was drafted by the team in 2013, five years after Bell was traded to the then-Charlotte Bobcats.
Because of his size, Len — who stands 7-foot-1 — will likely need a little more room to move around than the rest of us. It sounds like his new place has it, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The 6,700-square-foot home sits on slightly more than an acre of land.
The property also has a retractable glass wall separating the family room and the backyard, along with a gourmet kitchen.
The Antratsyt, Ukraine native will be able to enjoy three fireplaces, an office, an exercise room and a three-car garage.
Should any family come to stay, they can put their feet up in a separate guest house with its own two-car garage.
