Charles Barkley donates $45,000 for Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon’s water project in Africa

The NBA on TNT crew welcomed Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon to their set inside Fiserv Forum Friday night, after Brogdon scored 14 points in a blowout win over the Toronto Raptors. Brogdon, who recently returned from a plantar fasciitis injury, was given the chance to speak about his non-profit organization Hoops2o, which installs clean wells for communities in need in Africa.

"We basically build clean water wells in East Africa and Tanzania," Brogdon said. "So every summer I go over there. I raise money through the season, I have four other guys in the NBA who are helping me raise money on different teams, and I'm just trying to raise as much money as I can to build more wells. And then I go visit the people in Africa and see the impact it has."

Charles Barkley asked how much it costs to build a well and immediately pledged the $45,000 necessary. Shaquille O'Neal suggested Brogdon name it "the Chuck well."

ROLLING: Giannis, Bucks dominating and no team can answer right now

SWEEP TIME: Bucks, Warriors sweeps wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing

Brooklyn's Joe Harris, Memphis' Garrett Temple, Minnesota's Anthony Tolliver and Atlanta's Justin Anderson are the other four players involved in Hoops2o.
