NEW YORK (AP) -- Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors has won the Joe Dumars Trophy presented to the NBA player who best exemplifies sportsmanship.

Curry received 88 of a possible 347 first-place votes from fellow players. Luol Deng of the Chicago Bulls was second with 84 votes and Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge was third with 56.

The NBA announced Thursday it will make a $10,000 donation on behalf of Curry to Habitat For Humanity East Bay, which uses volunteers to build affordable homes for families.

Each team nominated one player for the award, and a panel of former players selected six divisional winners. The other nominees were Charlotte's D.J. Augustin, New Jersey's Deron Williams and San Antonio's George Hill.

The NBA will donate $5,000 on behalf of each player to a charity of their choice.
