Award-winning writer and professional basketball player Dion Waiters just bought a new home in Miami, and it’s a pretty cool spot. The former Syracuse Orange star and current Miami Heat standout signed on the dotted line for a mansion priced at $7.4 million, according to the Real Deal.

The home is on a two-acre property, while the structure itself sits at 17,714 square feet. There are three master suites, 10.5 bathrooms, a pool, outdoor kitchen, large office and guest quarters. There’s also a 12-person shower (which is the first time I’ve ever seen that phrase), a driveway that fits 30 cars and according to Opulence Realty’s Marianna Dubinsky, room for a half of a basketball court inside too.

I mean, look at this damn place.

Waiters just got PAID by the Heat this offseason to the tune of $52 million over four years. After years of residing on Waiters Island all by his lonesome, betting on himself worked to perfection last season on a one-year deal with the Heat. Before getting injured, he was averaging 15.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game while single-handedly dragging Miami back into the playoff picture.

This season, he’s averaged 15.9 points per game, with 3.1 rebounds and 3.5 assists — though he’s shooting a career-best 44.8-percent from the field so far (albeit, in just eight games).

Congrats to Dion on the new pad. Being good at sports has its benefits, and he’s proven that writers can play basketball well too.
