Kings center DeMarcus Cousins will reportedly take care of all expenses for the funeral of a murdered Sacramento high schooler.
Jaulon Clavo, a varsity football player at Grant Union High School, was shot and killed Friday afternoon. Clavo was shot in the neck while driving a car with four teammates to pick up food before a home game.
The first-round playoff game against Breyer High School was postponed, according to The Sacramento Bee.
Cousins, who occasionally attends local high school football and basketball games, reportedly including Grant Union, offered to pay for the services, a city council member announced Saturday.
Cunningham reports that Cousins had hoped to keep his donation anonymous before the news leaked out at a candlelight vigil held in Clavo’s memory on Saturday. Cousins has donated in the past, including last June when he gave $27,915.05 toward the purchase of LED scoreboards for Sacramento High School’s gym.
