The team encourages fans to make donations of their own to support this cause.

The Orlando Magic announced Friday they've made a $5,000 donation to the Red Cross as that organization works aid victims of flooding in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Those countries border Montenegro, from which country Orlando center Nik Vučević hails, and the 23-year-old has pledged to make a Red Cross donation of his own.

"It is during times like these we must all band together to help others," Vučević said in a statement the team released. "I thank the Magic for their support in these efforts."

In the same statement, team CEO Alex Martins said, "We encourage others to lend a hand to those in need through the Red Cross."

On May 15th, a Reuters report indicated Bosnia and Serbia have seen their "heaviest rains and floods in the past 120 years." The death toll is estimated at several dozen, including 33 in Serbia, according to EurActiv.
