Russell Westbrook will always have great affection for the state of Oklahoma, but now he has one fewer piece of real estate there.

Westbrook recently sold a home he owned in Edmond, Oklahoma for $426,900, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The home was originally built in 2004 and purchased by Westbrook in 2008 for $383,500 when he first began his NBA career. Westbrook went on to spend 11 seasons with the Thunder, taking them to an NBA Finals and winning an NBA MVP award.

Westbrook is from Los Angeles and has made two home purchases in the city since 2015. His most recent purchase was a mansion near LeBron James in the Brentwood area of LA for just under $20 million.

Westbrook likely was motivated to sell the Oklahoma home after being traded from the Thunder to the Houston Rockets over the summer. The Edmond home was first listed for sale in October, three months after Westbrook was traded for Chris Paul.
