A warrant has been issued for the arrest of the former N.B.A. player Antoine Walker on criminal charges stemming from $822,500 in gambling debts. Walker is accused of three felony counts of writing bad checks. Prosecutors in Las Vegas said he failed to make good on 10 checks totaling $1 million written to Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood and the Red Rock Resort. Walker's lawyer in Las Vegas did not immediately respond to messages.

Walker took out gambling markers at Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, and Red Rock Resort worth $1 million from July 27-Jan. 19. Walker paid back $178,000 of the markers but now also owes $82,550 in fees to the district attorney's office for executing the criminal prosecution requested by the casinos, according to the Boston Globe.

Walker earned nearly $100 million in a 12-year NBA career, leaving the University of Kentucky to join the Celtics as a 20-year-old for the 1996-97 season. The next year, Walker was named an All-Star.

After being traded to the Dallas Mavericks in 2003, Walker ended up being tossed around the league, playing in Atlanta, Miami, Minnesota and he even returned briefly to Boston.
