If Walker fully repays the remaining debts incurred in 2008 and 2009, the felony charge could be dismissed. Walker owes money to Planet Hollywood, Red Rock Casino Resort and Caesars Palace casinos, the prosecutor said. If he violates probation, Walker could face a year in prison.
Walker, who is 35, starred on Kentucky’s NCAA national title team in 1996 and was a three-time All-Star with the Boston Celtics before winning a 2006 NBA championship with the Miami Heat. He also played for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2008.
Walker filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation in 2010 and played last year with the NBA Development League’s Idaho Stampede.
