Sacramento Kings' Rudy Gay looks to pass his Memphis home to a new owner

With his season having already come to a close, Sacramento Kings forward Rudy Gay is turning his attention to business away from the court. He’s put his home in the suburbs of Memphis, Tenn., up for sale at $1.749 million.

The 29-year-old Gay bought the property six years ago for about $1.176 million and created a contemporary living space featuring cool-toned interiors. Modern light fixtures, dark wood floors and neutral hues give the approximately 8,400-square-foot house a classic yet sophisticated look.

Among eye-catching details is a two-story living room with a white chandelier, a mirrored fireplace and a wall of windows. The chef’s kitchen has a vibrant tiled backsplash, and a media room sports a wet bar embellished with custom lighting.

A custom closet, a sitting room and a gleaming bath and vanity highlight the master suite. There are four bedrooms and five bathrooms in all.

Glass doors open to a tiered deck and patio with a trellis. Rolling lawns, mature trees and a three-car garage fill the 1.6-acre grounds.

Ashley Pickens of Realty One Group 1st National holds the listing in collaboration with Ikem Chukumerije of Sports Relocation Inc.

Gay, a former first-round draft pick out of the University of Connecticut, came over to Sacramento in a 2013 trade with the Toronto Raptors. He averaged 17.2 points per game for the Kings last season, his third with the team.
