Former Kings guard Bobby Jackson has his Granite Bay home up for sale for $2.1 million.
That doesn’t mean the Kings fan favorite is leaving the Sacramento region. Listing agent John Elmasian of Gonsalves Real Estate said Jackson simply is interested in a new home -- perhaps one on a golf course.
Jackson, who last year was a player development coach for the Minnesota Timberwolves, retired from the NBA in 2009 but remained in the Sacramento area.
The 5,300-square-feet home on Stockhorse Lane, with six bedrooms and five bathrooms, sits on 2.4 acres. The home is fenced and gated.
The home has been on the market for about two weeks and has drawn a “nice level of activity,” said Elmasian.
After Jackson purchased the home in 2005, he added a pool, a basketball court and a putting green. There are also many fruit trees on the property.
“Bobby is still staying in town,” said Elmasian. “He is selling it but he is probably moving to a golf course or something a little closer to the ‘after NBA lifestyle.’ He considers Sacramento the long-term, permanent home for himself.”
