San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills says he is donating his remaining NBA salary in Orlando to various Black Lives Matter organizations.

Mills is taking “every cent” he will earn from the eight “seeding games” which turns out to be $1,017,818.54 and donating that to Black Lives Matter Australia, Black Deaths in Custody and a recent campaign called the We Got You Campaign, dedicating to ending racism in sport in Australia.

“I’m playing in Orlando because I don’t wanna leave any money on the table that could be going directly to black communities,” Mills said.
