Pitino: Antoine Walker plans comeback
|05.06.10 at 11:57 am ET|
University of Louisville coach Rick Pitino said Antoine Walker will work out with some of his players in the next few weeks in hopes of making a comeback to the NBA, according to an Associated Press report. The former Celtic hasn’t played in the NBA since 2008 and has had financial and legal problems since then, including charges of passing bad checks to settle enormous casino debts in Las Vegas.
Pitino coached Walker at the University of Kentucky and with the Celtics. He said Walker will offer advice to his players about staying out of trouble. “He’ll talk to our guys,” Pitino said. “What I told him is it’s not about the past, get ready and get going and move on.”
