Antoine Walker gets five years probation in casino case


Antoine Walker will not be going to prison, but he may now be going to Idaho of the D-League.

Walker was given five years probation in a Las Vegas courtroom Tuesday for failure to pay gambling debts. As part of the deal, he promised to pay the three casinos back the $770,050 he owes them.

Walker did not talk upon leaving the courtroom. He had a gambling problem that caused him to file bankruptcy last year.

Most fans remember Walker from his days as an All-Star with the Celtics. He played with the Idaho Stampede of the D-League last season and is expected to return to the side for much of this campaign.
