Chicago Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler has recently closed on a River North mansion, paying well over $4 million for the 10,000 square foot house, the Chicago Tribune reports. The 26 year old Butler closed on the house last week, paying $4.3 million for the mansion. Built in 2008, the mansion boasts an elevator, a 750-bottle wine cellar, a three-car garage, multiple outdoor spaces and just generally lots of room for entertaining. According to the Tribune, the home previously belonged to Greg Mutz, the CEO of developer AMLI Residential, a company that owns and operations a number of apartment projects throughout the downtown area. Butler joins fellow professional athlete Matt Forte to buy a behemoth home in the neighborhood. Fellow Bulls star Joakim Noah recently dumped his Lincoln Park mansion, which was sold earlier this month for $2.875 million. Butler still has plenty of cash coming his way however, as the athlete inked a five-year, $95 million deal in July with the Bulls.
