Three-time All-Star Antoine Walker made the decision to walk away from basketball on Saturday after a successful 12-year career, reports the Boston Herald.

The 6-foot-9 Walker, who won a championship with the Miami Heat in 2006, has not played on an NBA roster since his stint with the Timberwolves during the 2007-2008 season. Walker, 35, was in his prime when he played in Boston. As a Celtic, he made three All-Star teams and averaged over 20 points per game in five of his seven seasons with Boston.

Walker signed on with the D-League’s Idaho Stampede nearly two years ago. Many ballers who are trying to relaunch their career play in the D-League in order to get back on an NBA roster.

Walker, who was once engaged to TV reality star Evelyn Lozado of the VH1 “Basketball Wives,” has been drowning in financial debt. He made more than $110 million during his processional career, but has reportedly squandered his wealth. Multiple financial institutions, including the IRS, are reportedly pursuing him for unpaid debts. His lavish homes, tricked-out expensive cars, jewelry, and generosity to a fault with the 70 friends and family members he was supporting has seemingly gotten the best of him. He would pay for custom-made suits for his coaches, host pricey dinners for his teammates and give money to underprivileged kids.

His money never seemed to dry up–until now.

A more formal announcement about Walker’s retirement is expected soon.
