Former Celtic Antoine Walker [1] was sentenced Tuesday [2] by a Las Vegas court to five years of probation and ordered to pay $770,000 in gambling debts. Walker, 35, pleaded guilty in June to felony fraudulent check charges related to his failure to pay gambling debts to three casinos.

As part of a plea deal, Walker is prohibited from gambling.

A three-time All-Star with the Celtics [3], Walker last played in the NBA in 2008 with the Timberwolves [4]. He has tried to make an NBA comeback since making a brief appearance in a Puerto Rican league in 2010.
