Sacramento Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic will wear the word “Sloboda” (“freedom” in Serbian) as his social justice message on the back of his jersey when the NBA returns later this July, as Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated reports.

More than 10 players are expected to wear social justice messages in different languages on their jerseys, in support of the fight for equality.

Bogdanovic will be joining a series of players who have chosen to wear different messages in the back of their jerseys, including Giannis and Thanasis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis, Rudy Gobert, and Jusuf Nurkic. So far, Nikola Jokic and LeBron James opted out of wearing any messages.
