says he's trying to resolve criminal charges stemming from more
than $800,000 in gambling debts to three Las Vegas casinos.
Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melanie Tobiasson on Thursday
gave attorney Jonathan Powell until Nov. 30 to make a deal with the
Clark County district attorney or take the felony case to trial in
Walker was not in court. He faces three bad check charges
stemming from allegations he failed to repay $822,500 of $1 million
in casino loans between July 2008 and January 2009.
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.
