Negotiating contract extensions has typically been a last-minute ordeal, but that's changed this year.

Instead of waiting right up until the October 31 deadline to hand out extensions to 2010 draft class members, a handful of teams took care business of nice and early this offseason, removing any potential distractions for their star players.

John Wall, Paul George and DeMarcus Cousins all received max contract extensions from their respective teams, while defensive-minded big men Larry Sanders and Derrick Favors negotiated hefty extensions as well.
