LeBron James is reportedly in talks to buy a luxury mansion in Beverly Hills that is truly fit for a king.

According to The Real Deal, the Los Angeles Laker is considering buying a “13,000-square-foot property, which sits on a 2.5-acre plot and boasts seven fireplaces, a pool house with two baths, lighted tennis court, and screening room.”

The mansion was owned by Lee Phillip Bell, the co-creator of the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful. She passed away on February 25 at 81 years old. 

It’s not clear how much James would pay for the mansion but the property was being marketed at $39 million.
