Former Celtic Antoine Walker Eyes NBA Comeback

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Former NBA All-Star Antoine Walker is

eyeing 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 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.

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.
