The initial contract will not even be among the thirty largest in the history of sports. Nevertheless, it will be the most impressive among the NBA. With a total of $145 million, he’ll surpass Kobe Bryant’s contract in 2004, of 9 million dollars, at a time when it was still possible to engage in six or seven years against today’s five years.

But with an average of 29 million per season, Pelicans forward/center remains below the 30 million that only the Lakers star and Michael Jordan had exceeded.  Kobe Bryant made $30.5 million this season, which still invoices $871,000 dollars per match actually $783,000 since he was injured more than half of the season. Jordan, first sports billionaire in history, had made $33.14 million during the sixth season as the Chicago Bulls in 1997-1998.
