The longtime standout sixth man and Chicago Bulls forward Toni Kukoc and his wife sold their Highland Park home in the area earlier this month.

One of the best sixth men in the franchise history of the Chicago Bulls, and one of the best in recent memory in the entire NBA, looks to be selling his home with his family in the Windy City. According to a report from Bob Goldsborough of the Chicago Tribune on Oct. 21, the longtime Bulls great sixth man and the Croatian forward Toni Kukoc and his wife listed their Chicago home on the market.

Their home (reportedly valued at just under $1 million) in Highland Park sold back on Oct. 15 for $920,000.

Here’s more on what this report from the Chicago Tribune had to say on this matter.

"Kukoc and his wife paid about $1.2 million in late 1993 for the six-bedroom, 5,035-square-foot house. They took a substantial loss on the house, some 27 years after buying it.Built in 1990, the house is in the Hybernia development, and was one of the neighborhood’s original models. Features include five full bathrooms, two half-baths and an open foyer. The living room and family room feature two-story-high ceilings, while a private den or office is also located on the first floor."

Toni and Renata Kukoc reportedly (Chicago Tribune) originally listed their Highland Park home for around $1.5 million back in March 2019. But the value apparently continued to drop until the home finally sold around 18 months after it was originally listed on the market.

The playing days for Kukoc in the NBA ended following the 2005-06 season, at the age of 37 with the divisional foe Milwaukee Bucks. He spent seven seasons with the Bulls, winning three NBA Championships, getting a 1993-94 All-Rookie Team nod, and winning the 1995-96 Sixth Man of the Year honors.

Kukoc also spent four seasons with the Bucks, and then two each with the Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks. He played in just under 850 career regular season games in his playing days in the NBA, while averaging 11.6 points per game, 4.2 rebounds, and 3.7 assists.

Most recently with the Bulls organization, Kukoc served as the special advisor to the team’s owner Jerry Reinsdorf. After the 2005-06 season concluded, Kukoc could’ve signed to play elsewhere, but he wanted to retire to be closer to his home in Highland Park.
