NBA Ref The Focus Of A Gambling Probe

The F-B-I is investigating allegations that N-B-A referee Tim Donaghy bet on basketball games over the past two seasons, including ones in which he officiated. Defense attorney John Lauro confirmed Donaghy is under investigation but refused to comment on the allegations or the case.

A law enforcement official says authorities are looking into whether Donaghy made calls to affect the point spread in games on which he or his associates had wagered.

An oddsmaker at Wynn resort in Las Vegas says it's "too early to know" if the outcome of any N-B-A games was affected
