Chris Gatling would list the four-bedroom house for $800/month, calling it an Ex-NBA player's home online.

Former NBA star Chris Gatling pleaded guilty last Thursday to theft and forgery charges after he was accused of squatting in a home in Paradise Valley, Ariz., and listing the home for rent on Craigslist. 

The retired forward, 45, who played for the Golden State Warriors, Miami Heat, and Dallas Mavericks, among others, in his 11 seasons, had been accused of breaking into the key box at a home and living there for about a year. 

According to police, the homeowners lived in California but had left the power on in their Arizona home while they were away.

While there, Gatling allegedly tried to rent the house multiple times. According to Sports Ilustrated, a local TV station reported that he'd list the four-bedroom house for $800/month, calling it an Ex-NBA player's home online. 

In one case, according to NBC Sports, Gatling actually got a down payment from one potential renter, but another called police. 

Gatling will be sentenced Oct. 4.
