NBA guard Michael Carter-Williams, who was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in a midseason deal earlier this year, snagged a lavish pad in a tony suburb of Milwaukee last month.

The 2014 NBA Rookie of the Year paid $1.65 million for the five-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom home measuring 9,900 square feet. On the market for six months, the Tudor-style home on a half-acre property in the village of River Hills was designed by Russell Barr Williamson, a former associate of Frank Lloyd Wright.

The high-scoring shooter made an initial splash in the NBA with the Philadelphia 76ers, but he will now look to gel with the up-and-coming Bucks squad. Signed through 2017, he's making himself at home with an in-ground pool (with a diving board), wine cellar, game room, pool, guesthouse, see-through fireplace, and workshop.

This purchase makes him a resident of Wisconsin's highest-per-capita-income community. That figures.

Speaking of figures, Carter-Williams also shaved $300,000 off the $1.95 million asking price, making this a slam-dunk sale for a 10-year-old property that blends traditional design with modern comforts.
