When it comes to his career, college coach and former NBA star Danny Manning is nothing but net. When it comes to real estate, the 49-year-old is having a hard time scoring.

The Wake Forest head coach has had his Lawrence, KS, home on the market for almost two years. The five-bedroom, seven-bath abode is now listed for $1.95 million.

So what does the house of an ex-NBA player look like? Big, big, big. At 7,800 square feet, there's plenty of room to stretch out. The spacious residence includes multiple entertaining areas, a gourmet kitchen, a sun room, and an office.

You can live out your hoop dreams by shooting baskets where Manning did, in the indoor sports court. Outside, there's also a pool and outdoor living space.

"This is an impressive, custom-built home with unique amenities and fine finishes, in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in northeast Kansas," says listing agent John Esau. "It is priced considerably under what it would cost to build today, and we're still looking for a qualified buyer who sees the incredible value and will enjoy the home as much as the Mannings."

If you're a big fan, you could even choose to keep the furnishings he left behind, which are available at a negotiated price. (We're not sure if those cool jerseys in the bedroom are part of the deal, but hey, you could always ask.)

While Manning has left Kansas for his coaching job in North Carolina, he'll always have roots in the plains. A living legend in Lawrence, the forward led the Jayhawks to the national championship in 1988.
