Clark, 22, died while holding a cellphone in his grandmother's backyard. He was unarmed, and his death sparked protests in Sacramento.

Demonstrators blocked the doors for Thursday's NBA game between the Kings and Atlanta Hawks.

Clark's family set up a GoFundMe page on Monday to raise money for funeral expenses and burial costs with a $50,000 goal. It had raised nearly $67,000 by noon Saturday. 

Cousins spent six seasons in Sacramento but now plays for the New Orleans Pelicans. Barnes announced his retirement earlier this season, the Bee reported.

Cousins has helped families in need before. In 2015 he played for the funeral of high school football player Jaulon “JJ” Clavo, who was shot before a playoff game.
