NBA forward Solomon Hill scores a fresh contemporary on the Westside

Though a torn hamstring has kept him off the court this season, New Orleans Pelicans forward Solomon Hill is making moves.

The 26-year-old has bought a contemporary home in the Westside community of Palms for $2.3 million.

The 3,481-square-foot house, built in 2014, has high ceilings, white oak floors and an abundance of open-plan living space. A central staircase splits two sunlit living areas, each equipped with a fireplace. Also on the main floor is a dining area and center-island kitchen with walnut cabinetry.

The floor plan includes four bedrooms and five bathrooms, including a master suite with a walk-in closet and steam shower.


Sliding glass doors open to a covered patio with a fire pit. A stroll through the landscaped lawn leads to a zen-like garden and gazebo.

The property came to market last April for $2.45 million and was more recently listed at $2.349 million, records show.

Damon Skelton of Compass was the listing agent.

Hill played college basketball at the University of Arizona before being drafted by the Indiana Pacers in 2013. Through four seasons, he has shot 40% from the field in 249 games played.

He is in the second year of a four-year, $48-milion deal he signed in 2016.
