Antoine Walker seeks NBA comebackPosted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports:
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.
It’s highly unlikely any team gives Walker a shot. At best, if over time he proves to be in shape and serious about helping a team, some squad might offer him a non-guaranteed contract so he can prove himself. Still others may offer him a job as an arena hot dog vender. Because, when the game ends, there’s free hot dogs to eat.
