Some logic on why the Zion Williamson body weight clause in his contract doesn’t matter unless he is waived.
The base amount doesn’t get adjusted if he misses the criteria, only the guaranteed amount. – 5:42 PM

Think the Zion weight clause in the contract is the right move. A games played clause could have put pressure on both sides if Zion wanted to play hurt or he could’ve lost money due to things he couldn’t control. This seems like the right balance of protection for both sides. -MP – 7:47 AM

The weigh-ins just reduce the guaranteed money in Zion’s deal. That only matters if the Pelicans cut him. If they keep him on the roster (and they will) it doesn’t reduce the amount he gets paid. It’s some protection for the team but I don’t think it truely matters – 4:22 PM
