After the mass school shooting that included the murder of eight children and a security guard at a Belgrade school, the Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic has committed to pay for those funeral services and grief counseling for classmates and staff.

Doncic has deep family ties to the Belgrade, Serbia region and a spokesperson for the Luka Doncic Foundation tells ESPN of his immediate plans to take care of the funerals and counseling – and a long-term commitment to provide whatever other assistance is needed.
