After making his Hollywood debut in "Trainwreck" this summer LeBron James has decided he needs an abode nearby, perhaps he's got his eyes set on more films!

According to Variety magazine James purchased a $21 million, 9350 square foot mansion in L.A.'s Brentwood community where he'll be snuggling up next to celebrities like Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Affleck and many more.

But don't worry, this is a move that's not related to basketball. A source at confirms:

He likes L.A., he plans on spending time there in the summer, and he has a growing number of business opportunities. No one should read this as any indication about basketball. It's a vacation house.

Here's the description of LeBron's new mansion from Variety, who also has exclusive photos of the house.

The stone and white brick-clad exterior gives way to a voluminous foyer flanked by ample living and dining rooms, both with fireplaces and honey-toned wide-plank wood floors. Less formal family quarters include a cook-friendly kitchen fitted with slab marble back splashes and every high-quality stainless steel appliance known to mankind, a breakfast nook set into a window-lined semicircular bay, and a family room that spills out through a bank of French doors to the backyard. The master bedroom shares a two-way fireplace with a private sitting room, and additionally offers a snazzy marble bathroom and private terrace. Deep verandas for al fresco lounging and dining overlook a slightly compact backyard decked out with a lap-lane swimming pool, open air cabana, and long, slender deck with panoramic sunset views over mansion-dotted mountains.
