Former NBA all-star Antoine Walker appeared
briefly in a Las Vegas court to face criminal charges in a case
involving an $822,500 casino gambling debt.

The 6-foot-9 Walker said nothing inside or outside the courtroom
as he appeared Monday with his lawyer, Jonathan Powell, on three
felony counts of writing bad checks. Powell also declined comment.

Each charge carries a possible one- to four-year prison term.

Walker remains free on $135,000 cash bail posted Thursday
following his arrest at a Lake Tahoe hotel. Walker was in northern
Nevada to play in a weekend celebrity golf tournament.

Walker wasn't asked to enter a plea before a Las Vegas justice
of the peace set a Sept. 16 date for an evidentiary hearing.
