In the latest summer scandal, Zion Williamson and his family were sued for $1.8 million.

The struggling Pelicans forward is being sued by a California-based software company, as well as his mother and stepfather, for allegedly failing to repay $1.8 million of a $2 million loan.

According to the Associated Press, Ankr PBC, a business that specialises "in blockchain-related technologies used in finance

and data storage," made the loan to the 23-year-old Williamson and family members in September 2021.

At the time, the company was attempting to establish a marketing relationship with Williamson, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, in the hopes that he may serve as an Ankr spokesman.

According to the claims, Ankr aided Williamson with community events and supplied the athlete with a personal chef and physical trainer.

According to the lawsuit, Lee Anderson, Williamson's stepfather, functioned as the two-time All-Star's business manager and sought $150,000 up front.

The loan from Ankr was to be repaid in August 2022, according to the terms of the agreement.

Anderson allegedly demanded extensions, and Ankr got a $25,000 payment from him that allegedly bounced.
