Newton bought the unit back in 2012 for $1.6 million, so it’s no hunk of junk. In 2019, Newton placed this same unit on the market for $3.2 million, but has since dropped to around $2.6M. Now, LaMelo Ball occupies the 3,335 square foot luxury condo, and for a 19-year-old rookie, he ain’t doing too bad for himself.
There are no details of how much Ball is spending as a tenant. Newton’s home is located in Queen City in a boutique building called “The Trust.”
According to the report, Michael Jordan and American Idol‘s Chris Daughtry have also lived in the building. Another “W” for the Ball family.
