He recently announced he wouldn’t be joining the Australian Boomers squad at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.

Hidden Hills is home to retired basketballer Dwyane Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union, rappers Drake and Lil Wayne, and of course the Kardashian family.

The Melbourne-born athlete’s home features an ultra-modern design throughout.

The first floor opens out to a minimally designed open-plan kitchen and living area, decked out with top-of-the-range appliances.

There are seven spacious bedrooms, including the master bedroom on the second floor which overlooks the pool, as well as eight bathrooms.

The home is an outdoor entertainer’s dream with a large swimming pool, cabana and landscaped garden.

Simmons’ property also has an impressive guesthouse, a giant fireplace, marble-clad bathroom and its own plunge pool.

Simmons indicated last week that while he remained committed to representing the Boomers in the Olympics now was not the time, following a string of inconsistent performances after Philadelphia’s early exit from the NBA playoffs.

Boomers coach Brian Goorjian said: ‘It is a pretty rough time for him right now and I know it is something that he wanted to do, but the timing just hasn’t worked.

‘The best thing for everybody right now is for him to go on and develop that skill package and improve in a couple of areas for his next season in the NBA, but the Boomers are always here for him.

‘We wanted him to know that in his time of need, the culture and the guys here are behind him and support him.’
