It’s wildfire season on the Pacific coast, and while the huge fires in California are getting the most coverage, the entire West coast is suffering. That includes the state of Oregon: the home of Spurs two-way center Drew Eubanks.

As a result, he is teaming up with Portland Gear to sell “Heart for Oregon” T-shirts for $30 a-piece, with 100% of the profit going to the Oregon Food Bank. On top of that, the Food Bank will donate 60 meals for every shirt sold.

Eubanks expressed his desire to help his home state, having lived through wildfires in the past but not having the platform he does now to help. Citing the inspiration players like Patty Mills have given him with his wildfire relief efforts in Australia, he is determined to help now. You can help contribute by clicking here.

Eubanks is set to become free agent this offseason. He is no longer eligible to sign two-way contracts, so he’ll need to sign a fulltime NBA contract to remain in the league. He showed potential to be a solid backup center during the Spurs’ eight Bubble games, and if there’s an opening it’s not hard to see the Spurs giving him a chance. They can sign him for a minimum of $1.635 million according to Spotrac, although this doesn’t take into account any potential salary cap changes that may come as a result of COVID-19.
