ESPN reported yesterday that Cuban allowed Barea to use the team plane to transport food, water and other vital supplies to Puerto Rico and that the point guard missed the first day of the Mavs' training camp Monday to do so.

"I texted him. Five minutes later, he goes, "Check your email, '" said Barea, who spent about four hours in Puerto Rico, helping unpack supplies that included medicine and 32 generators". Most people are also without water. Barea's father is expected to stay in Puerto Rico to assist with relief efforts.

"It's bad", Barea said.

Barea started an online fundraiser that has raised over $96,000 of a $150,000 goal. "They know it's bad, but they really don't know how bad".
