Jontay Porter has thrown away an opportunity of a lifetime. He has now been banned for the rest of his playing career by the NBA.

According to the NBA’s investigation, Porter — the brother of Denver Nuggets star Michael Porter Jr. — bet on NBA games. As a result, he was given the death sentence on his playing career in the premier league in the world.

Now, Porter will have to sign on with a team overseas to make money from the game he loves. It is not clear how much this suspension will impact the team’s interest overseas.

He bet on 13 NBA games through an associates account, according to the league’s investigation. He also allegedly bet three times on a parlay that included the Raptors to lose.

According to NBA Insider Shams Charania, he disclosed information to an NBA bettor. Plus, an $80,000 bet by a Porter associate was made for Porter to underperform that could have netted $1.1 million before it was frozen.

Charania is reporting that Porter netted $21,965. The total payout for the 13 bets were $76,059.

Porter appeared in 26 games with the Raptors. He started five of those games this season.

He averaged 4.4 points per game.

His last game with the Raptors came on March 22nd. He scored seven points on a 123-103 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Before this season, he also appeared in 11 games with the Memphis Grizzlies during the 2020-21 season.
