The holidays are usually a slow time for real estate, but it seems to be a busy time for professional athletes.

Just this month, both Roy Halladay and Jonathan Papelbon put their homes on the market. And now former Sixers player John Salmons has listed his Main Line mansion for $4.9 million.

Salmons, who currently plays for the New Orleans Pelicans, purchased the 10,400-square-foot Bryn Mawr home with his wife, Taniesha, in October 2007 for $4.495 million. The couple just welcomed their fourth child last month.

The Philly-born forward got his start in the NBA while playing on the Sixers from 2002 to 2006.

Some highlights in Salmons' pricey pad include a full gym, sauna and spa, a theater, an elevator, and a wine cellar.

The master suite includes his and hers walk-in closets, and his and hers private bathrooms. There are six bedrooms and seven full bathrooms.

The massive home has a gated entrance with a private courtyard. It sits on one-and-a-half acres.

Salmons' house isn't too far from the Bryn Mawr digs of former Sixers coach Larry Brown, whose sale is reportedly pending. The estate, dubbed Linden Hall, had been on the market for as much as $7.85 million.
