Wiggling back to the NBA?
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Former NBA All-Star Antoine Walker is eying an NBA comeback.
Louisville coach Rick Pitino says Walker will work out with several Cardinals over the next few weeks. Walker hasn't played in the NBA since 2008 and has suffered legal and financial woes since stepping away from the game.Walker
Walker agreed to pay three Las Vegas casinos over $900,000 to settle three bad check charges last fall.
Pitino, who coached Walker at Kentucky in the 1990s, said he also hopes Walker will talk to his players about the temptations that come with life as a professional.
"He'll talk to our guys," Pitino said. "What I told him is it's not about the past, get ready and get going and move on."
Walker was a three-time all-star with the Boston Celtics and won a championship with the Miami Heat in 2006. He played briefly in Puerto Rico during the 2009-10 season.
