Antoine Walker is receiving interest from four to six NBA teams, according to Chico Walker, the forward's uncle.

"He said, 'I made a lot of mistakes,' " Walker, a former member of the Red Sox, said.

"[He said,] 'I made a lot of mistakes and I trusted the wrong people. I realized going forward I have to have positive people around me, just in life period. I have to have a lot of positive people around.' And I think now he gets it."

The younger Walker has endured a DUI charge, reports of gambling debt, real estate gone bad and a bankruptcy filing in May.

Chico estimates Antoine has dropped between 18 and 25 pounds as he continues to improve his conditioning under Louisville coach Rick Pitino's watch.

"He's definitely looking to go into training camp, but he knows it's not going to be a guaranteed contract," said Chico. "He's going to have to go in and make a team, and he understands that. That's where he is in terms of his conditioning. He knows he has to go in there and earn a spot. Nothing's going to be given to him regardless of what he's done in the past.

"I think the main concern is that this other stuff is going to follow him around. Is that going to be a deterring factor for a lot of teams? Hopefully not because basketball-wise, I still think he has a little bit to give to the game. But he has to go in and he has to show that. Nothing’s going to be given to him at this point."

I don't see any team that could benefit by having him on their team.

He should just retire, he's a waste of a roster spot.

What can a team really want Walker for I mean really I don't see a single quality in his game at the point in which he last played that any team would actually have use for much less now 2+ years later

Any word on what teams have shown interest? At this point i don't think hes any more than a spot up shooter. We don't need him, but it wouldn't hurt..

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i live in mass and have seen first hand what he does. dont do it. it would kill chemistry it would be liking watching rasheed this year. if anyone on PSD ever takes my advise listen that you should stay far far away from him. he'll just jack up 3's, not defend, not pass, cant drive., and did i say jack up threes? DONT EFFING DO IT!

when was the last time you saw walker play? He is farrrrrrrrrrr removed from a spot up shooter. You guys would be better served going after Raef Steve Novak

Actually it's his nephew, get your facts straight

But in all seriousness I agree with you, I highly doubt any teams have interest in him, just seems like a ploy that will most likely fail

I would really love to see this guy get one more shot and be able to contribute to an NBA team. He was one of favorite players back in the day he just really made some bad choices.

People are so quick to jump on the bandwagon and say he's washed up but if he's in shape he's still better than a whole lotta bums sitting on the bench collecting a check!

When Walker was playing in Miami, he really seemed to adopt well as a role player, taking charges and not demanding the ball and working the glass, and putting up a consistent jumper, so if he could provide that type of play off the bench, I dont see why a lot of teams wouldnt be interested in him.

I'd like to see him go back to Boston and play effectively as a back up. I think that would be a nice ending to his career, but a lot of teams could use a guy who played the way Walker played in Miami a couple seasons back, and he isnt as old as some guys. There are a lot of guys out there that have a couple years on him who still play effectively.

A third stint in Boston? I don't think so... the Celtics need a good backup small forward, but I don't think I'd want Walker back all that much... I'd rather get Bill Walker back from the Knicks then take Antoine back, unless this off-season put him in the best shape of his life.
