NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA and the players' union are combining to donate $1 million to tornado relief efforts in the Oklahoma City area.
The league and the NBPA announced the joint pledge on Tuesday. The money will be going to the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, and other disaster relief efforts after a tornado devastated the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore on Monday.
The donation follows $1 million pledges from the Oklahoma City Thunder and star forward Kevin Durant.
Durant says seeing the devastation in his adopted hometown was ``tough to watch.'' But he also believes the community will band together to get through such a difficult time.
The Red Cross is accepting $10 pledges from people who text ``REDCROSS'' to 90999. People can also donate at the organization's website.
