Chris Gatling Accused of Squatting in Someone's Arizona Home For a Year, Tried to Rent it on Craig's List

Xavier McDaniel (L) of the Boston Celtics defendsChris Gatling was a squatter. The former NBA player – and first round pick – is facing criminal charges for squatting in a house in Paradise Valley, Arizona from July 2010 to August 2011. The homeowners live in California and Gatling allegedly broke into a keybox. The power had been left on. Gatling eventually tried to rent the house on Craig’s List. From The Republic:

The TV station reports that he later listed the four-bedroom house for rent for $800 and called it an “Ex-NBA” home online.

Court records say that Gatling got a down payment from one potential renter but that another got suspicious and contacted police.

Gatling’s attorney, Michael Alarid, said the case is a “misunderstanding.”

Gatling, a star at Old Dominion University, played with the Warriors, Heat, Mavericks, Nets, Bucks, Magic, Nuggets and Cavaliers  and made around $30 million in his career. Hopefully, Gatling responded to police in the only acceptable manner.
