Lakers assistant coach David Fizdale found time for a real estate move in the middle of basketball season and bought a $1.725 million waterfront condo in Miami Beach.
Fizdale, who coached the Grizzlies and Knicks before taking on an assistant role with the Lakers last year, paid $175,000 more than asking price for the two-bedroom unit in Akoya, a 47-story skyscraper that ranks as the third tallest building at Miami Beach.
It is the second home he owns in the complex; Records show he bought a smaller unit a few floors down in 2018 for $785,000. The LA native also owns a Mediterranean-style eatery in Calabasas, which he bought for $2.25 million in 2020.

The corner condo spans just over 1,300 square feet and overlooks the ocean from floor-to-ceiling windows and a wraparound balcony. Highlights include automated blinds, remodeled bathrooms, and a custom closet in the master suite.
The building also adds amenities including a private beach walk, tennis court, heated pool and spa, fingertip security, and a gym overlooking the ocean.
One Sotheby’s International Realty’s Priscilla Gonsalves held the listing. Bryan Harr, also at One Sotheby’s, represented Fizdale.
Fizdale, 47, attended the University of San Diego and eventually became an assistant coach on the school’s basketball team before taking on NBA assistant roles with the Warriors, Hawks and Heat, with whom he won two championships in 2012 and 2013. As head coach, he spent brief stints with the Grizzlies and Knicks.
