LAS VEGAS -- Bankrupt former NBA All-Star Antoine Walker is due before a state court judge in Nevada after pleading guilty in June to failing to repay some $750,000 in gambling debts to three Las Vegas casinos.
A prosecutor said the 35-year-old Walker is expected to be sentenced Thursday to probation and promise to repay the debts incurred in 2008 at the Planet Hollywood and Red Rock Casino Resort, and in January 2009 at Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip.
Walker is from Chicago. He was a three-time All-Star with the Boston Celtics before winning a 2006 NBA championship with the Miami Heat. He hasn't played in the NBA since 2008.
Walker filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation in 2010.
He's now signed with the Idaho Stampede of the NBA Development League.
