Antoine Walker Set to Play in D-League

According to Fanhouse.com, Antoine Walker is now clear to play in the NBA Development League, or D-League. He will be playing for the Idaho Stampede. Walker has averaged 17.5 points and 7.7 rebounds for his career so far after being drafted the sixth overall pick of the 1996 NBA Draft. Walker is known for his deadly three-point shooting. He helped the Miami Heat win a title back in the 2005-06 season.

Walker was to join the Charlotte Bobcats, but he showed up too late due to coming to the team’s practice in September. Marc Stein reported for ESPN.com that Walker showed up to the NBA camps in great shape. Walker will be playing with familiar people on the Stampede, teaming up with folks like Luke Jackson, Salim Stoudemire, Dontell Jefferson, Randy Livingston, and Greg Minor.

Walker is 34 years old and was in debt. Huge debt. Walker will be like Antonio Daniels, as both are the oldest players in the D-League. Daniels was the fourth pick of the 1997 NBA Draft. Both are making comebacks to the NBA. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if both do.

Best of luck to all.
