Los Angeles Clippers
star Chris Paul is planning to stay in town a while ... 'cause he's about to drop $8.5 MILLION on a sick Bel Air mansion that he's buying from Avril Lavigne ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us ... Paul fell in love with the 12,184 square foot place, which Avril originally listed for $9.5 mil and decided he had to make a move.

The mansion -- located in a hoity-toity private community called Bel Air Crest -- includes 8 bedrooms and 10.5 bathrooms, a wine cellar, 10-car garage, gym, sauna and a covered outdoor living room.

We're told the real estate agents who engineered the deal are Jade Mills and Zach Quittman from Coldwell Banker in Beverly Hills who reps Avril, and, Ikem Chukumerije from SportsRelocation.com, who reps Chris.

Before Avril moved in ... Travis Barker lived in the place with his ex Shanna Moakler ... and it was even featured on their MTV reality show "Meet the Barkers."

As for Paul, dude is in year 3 of a 4-year $68,000,000 contract ... so, he can afford it.

That's the house Kim KarTRASHian tried to talk Kris into buying on one of their shows. Would have been hilarious if she had bought it and now had to live in it all alone.

Since he only has 1 year left on his $68 Mil contract he should be pay for the mansion in full. We don't want to read about him on TMZ in a few years broke and his house in foreclosure.

Come to think of it why would he need a house with 8 bedrooms, 10.5 bathrooms and 10 car garage anyway?

What is a little skater girl doing buying and living in a house like this to begin with? Can you imagine Avril walking around this place in her hoodie looking like a 13 year old? So weird. This house is for mature, sophisticated people. She should have always just had a little condo somewhere.
