    Miami Head Guard Tyler Johnson splashes the cash on new home.

    After rejoining Miami Heat on a 4 year $50 million contract, point guard Tyler Johnson has bought a 6 bedroom home in Pinecrest. The young star spent a cool $4.85 million on his residence, located at 9700 West Suburban Drive.

    The sophisticated family home boasts a half basketball court, a swimming pool, 4-car garage and even an elevator. The purchase has been well received by the previous owners, who paid $2.9 million less than 10 years ago.

    Johnson isn’t the first Heat player to purchase a seven figure home this summer. Hassan Whiteside, who plays as Miami Heat’s center, bought a six bedroom residence in Miami Beach for $7.3 million after signing a $100 million contract last June.

    The Man behind the House

    Tyler Johnson and his four siblings moved around a lot as kids, living in six different states before he reached high school. They moved around so much because Johnson’s mother worked in the Air Force. He was finally able to settle down at his seventh school, Saint Francis, Mountain View, CA, where he became the sixth man on the varsity team.

    Johnson went on to enrol in Fresno State where, as a senior, he was named to the All-Mountain West second team. He didn’t attract much interest from the NBA, being largely overlooked in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament 2014. Luckily he received a summer league invitation from the Miami Heat.

    He did well in his first few games and ultimately ended up playing in the D-League during the 14/15 season. It wasn’t until Dwayne Wade suffered an injury that the young Johnson was able to take his shot in the main team.

    By his second season in the NBA Johnson had become a key rotational player and Wade’s official back up. Fast forward to today and the 24 year old will receive $12.5 million a year base salary with Miami Heat. Dwayne Wade has now joined the Chicago Bulls leaving room for Johnson to force his way into the starting line-up.
