Antoine Walker was sentenced Tuesday to five years of probation and ordered to pay $770,050 in restitution to three Las Vegas casinos after pleading guilty to failing to repay gambling debts.

This case is finally over and it remains to be seen if or when Toine pays off those debts, as well as whether or not he resumes his D-League career. Either way, his NBA days are long over.

Antoine Walker has agreed to a deal with the Idaho Stampede in the D-League.

Walker will make $25,000, a far cry from an NBA salary, but he's still working to pay debts that he accrued by writing bad checks in Las Vegas. Last season with the Stampede he averaged 16 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.4 assists.

Antoine Walker is expected to sign with the Idaho Stampede of the D-League, if he passes the league's standard background check.

We're not quite sure what to say here. He's 34, in some financial trouble and likely a pretty big boy these days, although several reports indicate he's in good shape. He'll take his shimmy to the D-League in hopes of making it back to the bigs, but we don't expect to see him in an NBA uniform any time soon, if ever again.

Antoine Walker could join a D-League team as early as Monday, in another bid to return to the NBA.

The 34-year-old SF worked out with Charlotte in September but wasn't even invited to training camp. He's a longshot to be called up, and even if he is there's no reason to think he'll have fantasy relevance.

Antoine Walker is expected to join the Bobcats for daily pickup games prior to the start of training camp on September 28th.

Walker is friends with Bobcats center Nazr Mohammed and has a relationship with Michael Jordan, but there is no guarantee that he'll actually be invited to training camp. 'Toine is working overtime to earn an NBA paycheck this season and does appear to have lost significant weight, but he's no longer a serious fantasy option.
