Some details about Zion Williamson’s Nike contract have come out, enough for people to say it’s the richest annual rookie shoe contract in history, $75 million over five years.
Presumably LeBron James still had a bigger overall rookie deal but per annum WIlliamson appears to have surpassed him.
So basically, between his Pelicans contract and his Jordan deal, Williamson is worth about $120 million before he plays a single game. That doesn’t count other endorsement opportunities of which he should have many.
At this point in fact, his biggest worry might be over exposure.
