For­mer NBA play­er Jon­tay Porter is set to face crim­i­nal charges in con­nec­tion with a fed­er­al case against bet­tors who cashed in on his alleged gam­bling scheme, accord­ing to a new court filing. 

Porter, who was banned for life by the NBA for bet­ting on games, is accused of tip­ping off gam­blers about his plans to inten­tion­al­ly under­per­form in two NBA games, allow­ing them to prof­it off “prop bets” on his statistics.

Fed­er­al pros­e­cu­tors say four defen­dants — Long Phi Pham, Mah­mud Mol­lah, Tim­o­thy McCor­ma­ck and Ammar Awawdeh — face charges of con­spir­a­cy to com­mit wire fraud and oth­er offens­es relat­ed to the scheme. One defen­dant alleged­ly made over $1 mil­lion from the arrangement.
