Toronto Raptors forward Jontay Porter is under investigation by the NBA following multiple instances of betting irregularities over the past several months, multiple sources told ESPN on Monday.


At issue are prop bets involving Porter from games on Jan. 26 and March 20, multiple sources told ESPN. An NBA spokesman told ESPN that the league is "looking into it."

NBA COMMISSIONER ADAM Silver said Wednesday afternoon that Toronto Raptors forward Jontay Porter, who is currently under investigation by the league following multiple instances of betting irregularities over the past several months, could be banned from the league permanently if what he's accused of winds up being true, calling it a "cardinal sin."

Suspicions arose from prop bets involving Porter for games on Jan. 26 and March 20, in a story first reported by ESPN on March 25. Porter prop bets from those two dates wound up being the biggest moneymakers for each of them, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

There's so many things you are permitted to do as a professional athlete. Just lay off the sports betting.

If we allow athletes to bet, then nobody will allow sports betting anymore. Not even the mafia. It solves itself.

I'm curious how they find out that certain accounts are somehow linked to Porter. Do the owners of those accounts get their phone records pulled to see if they know Porter?
