Former Celtics and current Louisville coach Rick Pitino says Walker will work out with several Cardinals during the next few weeks. Walker hasn't played in the NBA since 2008 and has suffered legal and financial woes since stepping away from the game.
Walker agreed to pay three Las Vegas casinos more than $900,000 to settle three bad-check charges last fall. Pitino coached Walker at the University of Kentucky in the 90s and is having him speak to his young players about gambling and other troubles he faced as a professional.
"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."
I personally think who wouldn't want to sign him. Tommy Heinsohn will be the first in line to endorse the Celtics signing him hahahaa. My view is his dances alone are worth more than Sheed and his technicals because of his anger managment issues. I just want to see a bunch of this...
