Jason Kidd, retired NBA star and head coach for the Milwaukee Bucks, has listed his Hamptons home in Water Mill, N.Y., for $7.995 million.

Built in 2012, the roughly 7,800-square-foot, transitional-style mansion includes six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a large “man cave” area on the lower level that was recently filled with Kidd’s sports memorabilia, said listing agent Matthew Breitenbach of Corcoran Group Real Estate. “But that’s going with him,” he added.
