Doc Rivers sells his Boston condo for $3 million
|09.17.13 at 10:24 am ET|
Former Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who claimed Boston “is it for me as far as a city” back in April, sold his Boylston Street luxury condo in the Four Seasons almost exactly a month after leaving The Hub for Los Angeles.
Rivers sold the 1,801-square-foot, two-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom condo for $3 million on July 26, according to public records. The Celtics announced their decision to allow their coach of nine years to pursue an opportunity with the Clippers in exchange for an unprotected 2015 first-round draft pick on June 25.
For those counting at home, that’s almost as much as the annual salary of new Celtics coach Brad Stevens, who signed a six-year, $22 million deal in early July. Needless to say, Stevens wasn’t the purchaser of the penthouse condo.
Rivers walked away from the final three years on his five-year, $35 million contract with the Celtics to sign a similar three-year, $21 million deal in L.A. Rivers paid $2.2 million for the condo on Aug. 5, 2011 — a few months after signing that five-year extension — so he made another cool $800,000 on real estate upon leaving Boston.
Photos of the condo are available from that original listing two years ago.
