On the day before Thanksgiving, members of the Players Coalition teamed up with the league to help get nine Philadelphians being held in city jails released on bail, ESPN reports.

If any of them had the resources I did, they would be out,” Jenkins told the media. “So, it’s not a matter of public safety or being convicted of a crime, which they haven’t yet, it’s just they’re simply too poor for their freedom.”
