Zion Williamson just signed a contract worth millions, but it comes with some limitations. According to Yahoo!Sports, Williamson signed a five-year $193 million deal to extend his time with the New Orleans Pelicans that could draw in close to $231 million over the next few years. The new lucrative contract does, however, come with one condition — the 22-year-old must maintain a certain weight throughout the course of the agreement. Per the contract, Williamson has to weigh in at less than 295 pounds for the length of the deal. His body fat percentage will also be monitored because — if he does not meet the stipulations — the money in his contract has grounds to be reduced.
