Hield, who is from the Bahamas, set up a GoFundMe page page to raise money while donating $100,000 dollars of his own for relief efforts. "It means a lot. It just shows the awareness ... what had happened was devastation. You're not used to seeing a category five coming and hitting the Bahamas.

I think the Sacramento Kings have put a lot of hands on that too so I'm just thankful for everybody that has been apart of that situation I've had going on."
