The Oklahoma City Thunder were one of the first NBA teams to undergo club-wide testing for the coronavirus after Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert tested positive while preparing to play in OKC.

Thunder forward Danilo Gallinari is now paying those tests forward and then some. The 31-year-old has provided funding for 400 COVID-19 test kits and hospital supplies including face shields, N95 masks and gowns, according to ESPN's Royce Young.

"There is a need, and so people in my position, if we can help, if I can help, it's something that I feel that I want to do and I need to do," Gallinari told Young.
