For the rest of the season, each time DeSagana Diop swats a shot away, he'll be out to block malaria as well. The United Nations Foundation announced that Diop will donate $100 for each blocked shot to Nothing but Nets, the UN-sponsored charity that provides anti-malaria bed nets to Africa. Diop, a native of Senegal, will be joined in his effort by the Bulls Luol Deng of Sudan who will contribute $50 for each basket.
