LA Clippers center DeAndre Jordan announced that he will be donating $100 for every rebound he grabs this season to help Houston rebound from Hurricane Harvey.

DeAndre Jordan, who grew up in Houston and attended college at Texas A&M, announced on his Instagram that he would be donating $100 per rebound to help Houston recover and rebuild from the devastation that was caused by Hurricane Harvey.

In his first two games of the season, Jordan has already grabbed 37 rebounds with a 24 rebound performance against the Los Angeles Lakers to start the season and a 13 rebound performance in the Clippers’ blowout win over the Phoenix Suns.

In the 2016-2017 NBA season, Jordan ended with a total of 1,114 total rebounds with an average of 13.8 per game. His rebound total from last season would have resulted in $111,400 being donated to the charity, but Jordan could be in for an even bigger year on the boards with the new look Clippers.

With every player on the floor (excluding Jordan) able to knock down the three, that gives Jordan more space to work with on the offensive glass with a less congested paint. Jordan’s best year of rebounding was in the 2014-2015 season when he averaged 15 rebounds per game and ended with a total of 1,226 rebounds. While the team is only two games into the new season and the Clippers have played two pretty terrible teams, Jordan is averaging 18.5 rebounds per game which would obviously set a career high if he could keep it up.

Set to make $22,642,025 this season, Jordan should have no problem holding up his end of the bargain and during the Clippers’ most recent broadcast, longtime announcer Ralph Lawler said that Jordan had been encouraging his teammates to donate as well.
