Former Los Angeles Clippers guard-forward Quentin Richardson has sold his 10,900-square-foot mansion in Palos Heights, Ill., for $800,000.

The Chicago native and DePaul University star paid $2.2 million for the property in April 2006.

The contemporary residence, built in 2002, features a two-story floor plan with an indoor pool and spa, a chef’s kitchen, an office, five bedrooms and six fireplaces.

Among amenities is a finished basement level containing a home theater, game room, weight room and wet bar with custom lighting. The first-floor master suite has a walk-in closet and a separate sitting room set behind sliding glass doors.

Through a screened porch, the home opens onto half-acre grounds containing a paver patio, expansive lawns and a gazebo.

The 34-year-old was made the 18th overall pick by the Clippers in 2000 and played four seasons in Los Angeles before departing as a free agent in 2004. In August, he joined the Pistons' front office as a director of player development.

Richardson put the home on the market in April with an asking price of $1.1 million, public records show. Vergis Eiland of Coldwell Banker Residential listed the home on behalf of Richardson. Latonya Collins-Nalls of Charles Rutenberg Realty of Illinois represented the buyers in the sale, which closed Tuesday.
