San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills announced Wednesday that he will donate his entire salary from the NBA's restart to a trio of social justice causes.

"I'm proud to say I'm taking every cent from these eight games that we're playing, which for me will turn out to be $1,017,818 and 54 cents, and donating that directly back to Black Lives Matter Australia, Black Deaths in Custody and to a recent campaign that's called the We Got You campaign -- dedicated to ending racism in sport in Australia," Mills said in a video posted by the Spurs.

Mills' salary for the 2019-20 season is approximately $12.4 million, per Spotrac.

The 31-year-old Australian is averaging a career-best 11.7 points to go along with 1.8 assists and 1.6 rebounds in 63 games (one start) this season.

The Spurs (27-36) reside four games behind the Memphis Grizzlies (32-33) for the eighth and final seed win the Western Conference.
