Walker receives probation
LAS VEGAS -- Former NBA star Antoine Walker has pleaded guilty to passing bad checks in the form of unpaid gambling debts in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Sun reports the former all-star shooter who now plays for the NBA Development League's Idaho Stampede will be put on probation and work toward paying off $750,000.
The criminal complaint against Walker was filed in 2009, accusing him of having the debts at Caesars Palace and Red Rock.
