NBA players selected in the first round of the 2010 draft are eligible for contract extensions this offseason, which means budding stars like John Wall could sign deals that set them for life in the next few weeks. We took a look at players who got their contracts extended in the last decade while still on their rookie deals and found a few nuggets:

- Out of 294 first-round picks between 2000 and 2009, only 72 (24.4 percent) received extensions before their rookie contracts expired.

- Players selected with the No. 27 pick saw their contracts extended more often than No. 2 picks.

- Only two No. 2 picks - Kevin Durant and LaMarcus Aldridge - signed extensions in the last 10 years.

- Half the first-rounders of the highly acclaimed 2003 draft class received extensions while still on their rookie deals - including picks No. 27, 28 and 29. Darko Milicic was the lone Top 8 choice not to get one.

- No 11th pick with an extension in the last 10 years. The No. 11 pick of the 2010 draft was Cole Aldrich. So make it 11 years straight.
- The Thunder (previously Sonics) have signed first-round picks to extensions six times in the last decade. That's tops in the league.
- Unsurprisingly, the Knicks are the only franchise not to sign a single first-round pick to an extension. Nets and Spurs have not signed any since 2004.
- Only 17 players selected between No. 10 and 19 received early extensions compared to 20 among those chosen between No. 20 and 29.
- Greg Oden was the last No. 1 pick not extended. Previous one was Kwame Brown
