PHOENIX (AP) -- A former NBA All-Star accused of squatting at a Paradise Valley home and then trying to list the house for rent on Craigslist has pleaded guilty to theft and forgery charges.
Chris Gatling entered the guilty pleas to one count of theft and one count of forgery on Thursday in Maricopa County Superior Court.
His sentencing is set for Oct. 4.
Gatling was accused of breaking in the key box at the home and living there for about a year.
Police say the homeowners lived in California but had left the power on at the Arizona home.
Gatling's attorney, Michael Alarid III, declined to comment on his client's guilty pleas.
Gatling averaged 10.3 points in 11 seasons with Golden State, Miami, Dallas, New Jersey, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Denver and Cleveland.
