For those of you who believe that the NBA Draft Class of 2000 may be the worst ever, you'll be getting the confirmation you've been looking for soon enough.

Teams have until Oct. 29 to extend the contracts of players picked in the first round of 2000 NBA Draft. Typically, three to four players from an eligible draft class receive max contract extensions, and several others receive healthy six year deals.

This year, that number could be zero for the first time ever.
