Former Christian Laettner might be headed to a different type of court.

Former Duke player Christian Laettner, one of the most memorable college basketball players of his time, might be headed to a different type of court.

According to the Charlotte Observer, Laettner owes creditors — including former Lions linebacker Ernie Sims ($1,482,730) — $14 million after a series of failed business ventures.

This comes months after finishing a development in downtown Durham, N.C., which sold for $187 million. Laettner is listed as a partner with Fuller St. Development, which received $28M.

Sims, Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart ($3,629,230) and three companies are seeking repayment.
