Former NBA referee Tim Donaghy's tell-all book has been canceled by Triumph Books and parent company Random House.

"Blowing the Whistle: The Culture of Fraud in the NBA" was slated for publication later this month, but during the process of editing and vetting the manuscript, which Triumph received from Donaghy in the spring, Random House and its imprint made the joint decision to cancel the book out of "concerns over potential liability."
