Associated Press

NEW YORK — Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol was one of 10 NBA players donating $1,000 for every point he scored to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund on Friday night.

The players taking part, all clients of the Wasserman Media Group, included Rookie of the Year Derrick Rose, Atlanta All-Star Joe Johnson, rookie Tyreke Evans of Sacramento and Washington veteran Antawn Jamison.
A total of 47 players from the agency planned to donate a minimum of $500,000 to the fund. Former President Bill Clinton was at the Lakers’ game against the Knicks, where he planned to announce the program at halftime during an ESPN interview.
