Predicting Which 2010 NBA Draft Picks Will Get Extensions Next Season
Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

A number of stars from the 2009 draft class signed four-year extensions just prior to the NBA's October 31 midnight deadline.

Without the new deals, the players would have become restricted free agents next July, and their futures would have been clouded in a haze of qualifying offers and poison-pill loaded offer sheets.

We'll see the same scene play out next fall as the first-round picks in the 2010 rookie class become eligible to sign contract extensions.

While there will be a handful who are almost certain to sign new deals before they hit free agency, a number of others (Evan Turner, Gordon Hayward and Patrick Patterson, to name a few) need to have stellar 2012-13 campaigns if they want to ensure that they remain with their current teams.
