It’s getting to that point in the life of the 2006 draft class where players will begin to think about signing extensions with their teams, but as Chicago Now’s Bulls Condfidential points out, few players have made leap thus far:
Of the entire 2006 draft, only three players have signed extensions. First overall pick Andrea Bargnani got a 5 year, $50 million extension, and now Aldridge (second overall pick, tecnically) has signed for $70 million. The other to sign is another Blazer, Brandon Roy, who signed a maximum deal through 2015 last month. No one else has signed an extension, and few like they’re going to.
