Antoine Walker to Stand Trial for $882,500 Gambling Debts

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.

Walker was arrested in July at a Lake Tahoe hotel.
