Zion Williamson‘s new contract is coming with some hefty demands — the NBA star will reportedly have to maintain a certain weight and body fat percentage, or will risk losing some of his guaranteed money.
Williamson inked a 5-year extension worth up to $231 million to stay with the New Orleans Pelicans this off-season … but there’s a big catch.
Christian Clark of NOLA.com says some of that money could be yanked from his pockets if certain health stipulations aren’t met.
The report states the 22-year-old will submit to weigh-ins throughout his contract to ensure the sum of his weight and body fat percentage stays below 295 … and if he doesn’t, he’ll literally pay for it.
Williamson’s weight has become an issue since going #1 overall to the Pels in 2019 … and the former Duke star has only been able to play in 85 career games due to injury.
Williamson is currently training like a madman to get back to 100% in 2022-23 … which also includes switching up his diet, according to reports.
Williamson is currently listed at 284 pounds … but money talks, so expect to see him in amazing shape this season.
