Antoine Walker To Play In Poland?

Antoine Walker could be bringing the shimmy overseas, as a report from a Polish newspaper indicated that the former Boston Celtics star and three-time NBA All-Star has received job offers from three teams in the Tauron Basket Liga (TBL), otherwise known as the Polish Basketball League.

Zadłużony na blisko 13 milionów dolarów były gwiazdor NBA, Antoine Walker szuka pracy w Polsce. Według nieoficjalnych informacji, do których udało nam się dotrzeć, kilka klubów Tauron Basket Ligi otrzymało oferty kontraktowe z nazwiskiem Walkera. Jedną z drużyn, w którym może najbliższe miesiące spędzić skrzydłowy, jest odbudowywany przez Przemysława Koelnera Śląsk Wrocław. (via Sport.pl)

I'm assuming that all of you can read that, but for those who are behind, I'll use my super Polish translating skills (otherwise known as Google Translate) to translate. The gist of the paragraph is that Walker, with a debt of $13 million, is looking for work and has received a few contract offers from TBL teams.

Walker played 12 seasons in the NBA and over seven seasons with the Celtics, finishing with 15,647 career points and 6,891 rebounds in 893 games. In his career, Walker averaged 17.5 points and 7.7 rebounds.

Walker, who hasn't played in the NBA since the 2007-08 season, attempted a comeback last season and played in the NBA D-League with the Idaho Stampede (check out my story after one game where I was able to talk with Walker). In 43 games with Idaho, Walker averaged 16 points and 6.3 rebounds.
