CRIBS: Eric Piatkowski

Welcome to the first edition of SunsGossip CRIBS!

Newly signed Suns player Eric Piatkowski (formerly of the Bulls and Clippers) just closed on new Phoenix digs to the tune of $2.15 million. With a somewhat modest pricetag (by NBA standards), we weren’t expecting much. So imagine our surprise when the SunsGossip CRIBS cameras showed up to find the most balling-est shit we’ve ever seen.

You see, the former owner of the palatial five-story Neverland-ish house was Tracy Penwell, owner of Rima Fine Art. The gallery and its notorious owner are best known for ripping off Renoir sculptures and passing them off as the real thing. Penwell racked up quite the hefty legal bill during the scandal and has been liquidating her assets in order to pay her debts. Real estate experts estimate the true value of the property to be north of $30 million.

Congratulations on your new house, Eric. We have a feeling you’ll be leading the Suns in “steals” this season.
