Article Summary:

The New Orleans Pelicans can offer him more, and even if Zion ultimately wanted out he would be smart to sign an extension first.

Things aren’t as cut and dry for the New Orleans Pelicans, who may end up offering Zion Williamson the quirkiest contract in the NBA.

Zion Williamson’s injury and extension with the New Orleans Pelicans

Zion Williamson has only played in 85 games since being drafted by the New Orleans Pelicans and he has now missed 117 games with various injuries.

I don’t think the New Orleans Pelicans have much choice, as Zion’s injuries and his family’s reluctance to engage with the media has left them in a tricky situation.

If Zion Williamson were healthy and playing I think there is no doubt that he’d get the biggest rookie extension in history, but the way things are going, the Pelicans are going to have to hedge their bets with clauses in his contract that could complicate the entire situation.
