Greg Monroe, Gordon Hayward lead pack of 2010 draftees without extensions

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

2014 will have a nice little group of restricted free agents.

The deadline to sign members of the 2010 NBA Draft class to a contract extension has come and gone, with only one player signing a new deal on deadline day. That would be Quincy Pondexter, who became the sixth and final player from that class to sign an extension. The full list is as follows:

With only six guys reaching extensions, a number of really good players will hit restricted free agency in the summer of 2014.

The 2014 restricted free agents

Greg Monroe

An extension for Monroe never seemed all that likely, as his agent, David Falk, had said earlier in the year his client would test free agency. Monroe is part of a loaded Detroit Pistons frontcourt that also includes Josh Smith and Andre Drummond, and while having that kind of talent up front is great, it's also a bit crowded. With a Drummond extension looming on the horizon, the Pistons could choose to deal Monroe for some help on the wing if things aren't working out.

Gordon Hayward

Hayward and the Utah Jazz negotiated for a long time down to the bitter end, but they were never able to come to an agreement. Hayward was reportedly seeking a contract north of $50 million over four years, and the two sides remained several million apart by the time the deadline passed, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. The Jazz figure to match any offer Hayward gets in restricted free agency, but they'll likely have to shell out a few more bucks than they had hoped.

Eric Bledsoe

While Bledsoe wasn't able to come to terms on an extension with the Phoenix Suns, the team still plans on making him a key part of their future. There were conversations about a possible four-year extension according to Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic, but with Bledsoe being a career backup to this point and having played only one game in a Suns uniform, it was tough to find common ground. Still, the Suns will almost certainly match any offer sheet Bledsoe signs next summer.

Avery Bradley

Bradley is an interesting case. The 22-year-old is already regarded as one of the best perimeter defenders in the league, but he has struggled offensively and has dealt with some injury issues. Similar to Bledsoe, Bradley's value was likely challenging to get a grip on, which is probably why an agreement was never reached. Bradley should have a greater offensive burden this season, especially with Rajon Rondo out for the time being, so the youngster will have a chance to up his value and perhaps force Danny Ainge to overpay a bit.

Evan Turner

Considering how big of a disappointment Turner has been thus far, the fact that the former No. 2 overall pick wasn't going to get an extension was essentially a foregone conclusion. There were no discussions between Turner and the Philadelphia 76ers about a new deal, and with the team in the middle of a rebuild, he knows he's possible trade bait.

Greivis Vasquez

It was settled early Thursday that Greivis Vasquez wouldn't receive a contract extension from the Sacramento Kingsaccording to Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears. However, that doesn't mean the Kings don't have interest in keeping Vasquez long term. On the contrary, as Spears reports that the Kings are very high on the point guard and are likely to match any offer sheet he signs.

Ed Davis

Davis showed quite a bit of promise with the Toronto Raptors before seeing his playing time dwindle following a trade to the Memphis Grizzlies last season. Davis was still viewed as a possible extension candidate, although nothing ever came to fruition and it was reported by Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal that the sides were far apart. Davis is a candidate to replace Zach Randolph at the 4 down the road, but he still has a lot to prove.

Patrick Patterson

Patterson may not have seemed like the most likely candidate for an extension, but there were discussions with the Sacramento Kings about a possible deal. Patterson is starting at the 4 for the Kings this season, and he could make himself a nice chunk of change with a strong year.
