Toronto Raptors player Jontay Porter is banned for life from the NBA on Wednesday after a league probe found he revealed confidential information to sports bettors and bet on the Raptors to lose.

Porter is the second person to be banned by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver for violating league rules. The other was now-former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling in 2014, shortly after Silver took office.

“There is nothing more important than protecting the integrity of NBA competition for our fans, our teams and everyone associated with our sport, which is why Jontay Porter’s blatant violations of our gaming rules are being met with the most severe punishment,” Silver said.
