(AP) PORTLAND, Ore. - Former NBA star Rasheed Wallace attempted to make a $35,000 payment on a property tax bill on a house he owns in Portland, Ore., but when the county tried to collect the money it was told the account is not valid.

His wife submitted the electronic payment last week.

Multnomah County spokesman David Austin tells KGW-TV ( http://bit.ly/18SPYTm) that as a result, a $25 returned check fee will be added to the $150,000 bill.

Wallace is a former Portland Trail Blazer who is now an assistant coach with the Detroit Pistons.
