Jontay Porter, a player with the Toronto Raptors, has been handed a lifetime ban from the NBA. 

The decision comes after the league found that Porter had violated its rules on gambling. The NBA made the announcement on Wednesday, confirming that they had been investigating Porter's betting activities since late March. 

The league takes gambling violations seriously to protect the integrity of the game. The NBA's rules prohibit players, coaches, and referees from betting on basketball games, including their own matches.

Violating these rules can result in severe penalties, as demonstrated by Porter's lifetime ban. Porter, once considered a promising talent in the NBA, now faces a career-ending setback due to his actions.

The Toronto Raptors have not yet commented on the league's decision or Porter's future with the team. This incident serves as a reminder to all NBA personnel about the importance of adhering to the league's rules and regulations.
