STILL PHOTO OF CAVS PLAYER OSMAN BEING HELPED UP BY CAVS PLAYERS DURING NBA GAME AGAINST PISTONS STORY: Turkish NBA player Cedi Osman announced Saturday (January 25) he will donate money to victims of the earthquake that hit eastern Turkey late Friday (January 24).

Osman, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, posted a message on his Twitter account that he would donate $100usd for every 3-point basket made during tonight's NBA game against the Chicago Bulls before raising it to $200usd a few hours later.

The death toll from the quake reached 22 on Saturday, as rescuers searched for survivors trapped under the rubble of collapsed buildings.

The magnitude 6.8 quake late Friday shook Elazig province, about 550 km (340 miles) east of the capital Ankara, and was followed by 401 aftershocks, 14 of which had magnitudes over 4, according to Turkey's Disaster and Emergency Authority (AFAD).

Turkey has a history of powerful earthquakes.

More than 17,000 people were killed in August 1999 when a 7.6 magnitude quake struck the western city of Izmit, 90 km (55 miles) southeast of Istanbul.

About 500,000 people were made homeless.

In 2011, an earthquake struck the eastern city of Van and the town of Ercis, some 100 km (60 miles) to the north, killing at least 523 people.
