Sports celebrity Carlos Boozer, from Utah Jazz, sold his Coconut Grove Estate on June 15th at a loss of $800,000 (as per the MLS numbers) - Deseret News informs us:

But don't take that to mean the Jazz's unrestricted free agent power forward wouldn't still love to play for the Miami Heat, in the city where he makes his offseason home.

Boozer previously has said he and his family were planning to move from the Coconut Grove area of Miami to nearby Coral Gables.

According to the MLS history, he bought the home for $6.3 million in May of 2007 and then put it up for sale for $8.9 million in September 08 with a price decreases in February 09 ($7.9 million) and then again July 09 ($6.9 million).  The final sales price was $5.5 million. The listing description reads:

Custom Mediterranean estate overlooking Biscayne Bay on quiet private street with gated entrance. Home has state of the art media room, smart house technology, security camera system, quality finishes and custom mill work throughout the home, gourmet kitchen featuring top of the line appliances with large eat in area open to terraces. Detached guest house with private entrance includes living, bedroom and private terrace. Bring your most selective clients for this special home.

As expected with any Miami Celebrity Home, the listing caused quite a buzz and appeared in many Luxury Home sites including Luxist and Big Time Listings.
