If you ever wanted to live like an NBA star, you're in luck.

Philadelphia 76ers playmaker Ben Simmons has listed his home in Moorestown, New Jersey, for sale for $5 million.

According to the Trulia listing, the home totals 10,477 sq. ft. and boasts a home theater, gaming room, five bedrooms, six bathrooms and a three-car garage. Perhaps the three-time All-Star would even be willing to throw in his shadowboxed jerseys and framed magazine covers for the right price.

This is yet another sign pointing to Simmons' seemingly inevitable departure from the Sixers. He already put his unit at The Ritz-Carlton Residences of Philadelphia up for sale.

The Sixers already suspended the 25-year-old for their season-opening 117-97 win over the New Orleans Pelicans because of his effort—or lack thereof—in practice. By now, their relationship is probably fractured beyond repair.

Should Simmons wind up staying in Philadelphia, he may come to regret offloading his local property. Maybe a teammate will have a couch he can crash on.
