J.J. Barea is pleading for more assistance for his native Puerto Rico one day after borrowing Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s plane to deliver food, water and supplies to the island, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria.

“You always go to Puerto Rico — after the season, when I fly in — you look out the window and it’s beautiful,” Barea said after Wednesday’s practice. “The water’s blue, it’s green, there’s people moving around; you always feel the vibe. Yesterday, you look out the window, it’s dead. It is completely dead. “It’s awful. People are struggling. It was good to be down there and help, but to see it in person, it was tough. We need a lot of help, and it’s going to take a while. It’s just starting. There’s not gonna be no power. A lot of people are without water. It’s going to be a long, long process. We’ve just got to keep helping out.”
