Milwaukee Bucks player Malcolm Brogdon announced Thursday that he'll be the first NBA ambassador for Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long's Waterboys Initiative, which installs deep-borehole wells in east Africa.
A University of Virginia release says Long reached his initial goal of building 32 wells Danny Trevathan Jersey , at $45,000 each Jaire Alexander Packers Jersey , the same week the Eagles won the Super Bowl last month.
At Virginia, Brogdon partnered with a nonprofit focused on affordable ceramic water filters in South Africa.
The Hoos' generosity extends beyond water: Long donated his entire 2017 season salary to charities Marcus Martin Jersey , and Brogdon had the money budgeted for his Rookie of the Year campaign donated.A person familiar with the situation says Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry’s contract option for next season has been exercised by the club.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the club has not announced the move. The person says Gentry was informed of the decision before the Pelicans swept their first-round playoff series against third-seeded Portland.
ESPN first reported the club’s move.
Gentry is in his third season with the Pelicans and has gone 116-134, including four victories in this season’s playoffs.
New Orleans missed the playoffs during Gentry’s first two seasons Isaiah Oliver Jersey Elite , during which the team was hampered by a combination of key injuries or other matters that caused extended absences of key personnel.
