“Mo Buckets” is ready to move on from his place in the Sunshine State.
The colorful nickname belongs to former NBA center Marreese Speights. The big man with the sweet shooting stroke has put his enormous home in Clearwater, FL, on the market for the tidy sum of $2,599,900.
With seven bedrooms and 7.5 baths, the nearly 9,500-square-foot residence is set behind a gate. Once inside the gate, a road leads to the private estate, complete with a pool, guesthouse, and five-car garage.
Large families and those who love to entertain will be thrilled with the space this home provides, including formal living and dining rooms, a paneled study, and a family room with a fireplace.
Love to host game nights? There’s an incredible recreation area with a pool table as well as a home theater with room for a poker table and a popcorn machine.
Custom cabinets grace the kitchen, along with a huge island, granite countertops, two breakfast bars, a walk-in pantry, and a wine fridge.
The primary bedroom suite is a dream come true, with its own living room and fireplace plus a bathroom with a two-person shower, two sinks, and a bidet.
Outside, you’ll enjoy a heated pool, spa, and waterfalls, along with a kitchen that’s equipped with an ice machine, fridge, grill, and cooktop. There’s even a guest cottage with another full kitchen, bed, bath, and sauna.
Speights played for six teams over his 10-year career in the NBA. He was a member of the 2015 NBA champion Golden State Warriors and was on the Warriors squad that lost the 2016 finals. He eventually took his talents to China and finished out his pro basketball days with the Guangzhou Loong Lions. In April, he took an assistant coach gig at Georgia Southern University.
