Lakers center Yi Jianlian’s contract is only guaranteed for $250,000.
It’s a steal of a deal for the Lakers, who got very creative for Jianlian’s contract. While the deal is worth $8 million, the only way he’s able to receive the full amount is if he plays in at least 59 games this season. He looked pretty good for China this year but he’d need to have a monster preseason and get some help through a trade or injury to matter in most fantasy leagues.
