Former Piston Ben Gordon's baller Detroit-area mansion is staying in the family. Current Celtics forward (and Gordon's former Pistons teammate) Jonas Jerebko has purchased the massive six-bedroom home complete with an indoor gymnasium and three-section pool with a fountain for $2.2 million.

Jerebko (pictured above) was traded from the Pistons to the Celtics more than a year ago, but the Swedish star is keeping his roots in Michigan -- and getting a great deal in the process.

Gordon's home was originally listed at $4,189,000 in 2014, which means Jerebko waited in the weeds for a couple of years and saved almost $2 million from the mansion's peak price.

However, the now-retired Gordon is still doing A-OK in the deal -- he bought the home for $1.9 million in 2009.

Although Gordon made updates over the years, including adding a theater and craft room, he kept the 13,298-square-foot home's elegance intact. Jerebko can now enter the glorious marble-floored foyer and ascend the curving staircase, then pass through the twin french doors to the two-story great room.

But despite all that luxury, the best part (and what we're betting sold Jerebko on the space) is the indoor basketball half-court, complete with an elevated and carpeted viewing area for curious onlookers. A private practice space seems to be a requirement for Jerebko -- his previous Michigan home (which sold for $853,000 last year) also came with a court of its own.
