NEW YORK (AP) -A review of the NBA's officiating program has made recommendations for significant changes, but found no evidence of illegal activity by any referees other than Tim Donaghy.
The report, conducted by former federal prosecutor Lawrence Pedowitz, was issued Thursday. It called for the creation of a ``culture of compliance'' and the closer monitoring of games for suspicious activity.
Commissioner David Stern chose Pedowitz's firm to conduct the investigation last year after former referee Donaghy was charged with betting on games he officiated and providing inside information to gambling associates to win their bets. He is currently serving a 15-month sentence.
