New York has been hit hard by coronavirus, with more than 3,500 deaths and the number of recorded cases exceeding 113,000.
In collaboration with the Knicks, Nets and Huang, the NBA is moving to help New York's workers.
"The @NBA is contributing 1 million desperately needed surgical masks for New York's essential workers in collaboration with @nyknicks, @BrooklynNets and China's Consul General Huang Ping," governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, wrote on Twitter on Saturday.
"New York thanks you. We are beyond grateful for this gift of critically needed PPE."
New York thanks you.
We are beyond grateful for this gift of critically needed PPE.

The NBA season was suspended last month due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking on Saturday, United States president Donald Trump was unsure about when sport would resume in the country, but said he thinks it will be "sooner rather than later".
