A Las Vegas court has pushed back a status check to Oct. 29 for former NBA all-star Antoine Walker, amid talk of possible repayment in an $822,500 casino gambling debt case.
Prosecutor Bernie Zadrowski said Wednesday he's been talking with Walker's lawyer, Jonathan Powell, about settling the criminal case.
Neither Zadrowski nor Powell would provide specifics.
Walker faces three felony bad check charges for gambling debts at three Las Vegas casinos. He did not have to appear at a Wednesday hearing.
A complaint charges Walker, 32, with three felony counts of passing checks with insufficient funds from July 27, 2008, to Jan. 19 at Red Rock Resort, Planet Hollywood and Caesars Palace. The complaint alleges he wrote 10 separate checks for $100,000, each for gambling markers.
Walker was a three-time all-star for the Boston Celtics and won a championship with the Miami Heat in 2006. He last played for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2008.
