What 2007 Draftees Earned With Their Next Deals

Draft position largely determines how much first-round picks make with their first contracts, but it has little to do with the deal that comes after that. Player values can change drastically over the life of a rookie scale contract, as the 2007 draftees demonstrate. Since rookie contracts last no longer than four seasons, 2007 is the latest class in which most of the draftees have signed their second NBA contracts. 

They're listed below, ordered by the value of the second NBA contract they signed, with their original draft position in parentheses. Some players, like Morris Almond, have signed multiple NBA contracts since their rookie deals ended, but for our purposes, only the first contract following the rookie deal is listed.
