Basketball pros Candace Parker and Shelden Williams close out a home sale in Encino

It may have taken an extra quarter or two, but WNBA star Candace Parker and former NBA player Shelden Williams can officially call it a game in Encino.

The couple have sold their Spanish contemporary-vibe home in the area for $3.75 million, or about $650,000 less than the original asking price, records show.

Entered through a two-story entry, the house features formal living spaces and wood-framed windows across 7,058 square feet of interior space. Highlights on the main floor include a step-down living room and formal dining room, each of which features a chandelier and a fireplace.

A spacious kitchen, breakfast nook, bonus room, family room and theater room are among the other common areas. Seven bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms complete the floor plan.


The master suite, which has a fireplace and walk-in closet, opens to a terrace with canyon views.

The nearly one-acre lot also holds a palm-lined pool and tennis court.

Anthony Marguleas of Amalfi Estates was the listing agent, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Jasmine Garcia of Century 21 Realty Masters represented the buyer.

Parker, 31, won her first WNBA championship in 2016 as a member of the Sparks. The forward-center has twice been named the league’s most valuable player.

Williams, 34, holds the record at Duke for most career blocks and rebounds. Drafted fifth overall by the Atlanta Hawks in 2006, the power forward played for seven teams during his NBA career.
