The rookie contract extension deadline for the 2018 NBA Draft class passed Monday, and 11 first-rounders signed deals.

Among them were Phoenix Suns wing Mikal Bridges, who agreed to a four-year, $90 million extension Monday morning. Suns guard Landry Shamet, whom the Suns traded for this offseason, signed a four-year deal worth $43 million Monday as well.

But the franchise was unable to comes to terms with center and No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton. The Suns were reportedly unwilling to offer a five-year max contract, which Ayton sought.

Most of the players who did not agree to extensions will be extended qualifying offers from the teams to make them restricted free agents next summer, and they will have the choice to sign the one-year deal or enter restrictive free agency, where their current team can match any offers by other teams.

Here are the 2018 first-rounders, their current teams and whether they have a contract beyond the 2021-22 season:

1. Suns — Deandre Ayton — No extension
2. Kings — Marvin Bagley III — No extension
3. Mavericks— Luka Doncic — Five years, $207 million
4. Grizzlies — Jaren Jackson Jr. — Four years, $105 million
5. Hawks— Trae Young — Five years, $172.5 million
6. Magic — Mo Bamba — No extension
7. Magic— Wendell Carter Jr. — Four years, $50 million
8. Cavaliers — Collin Sexton — No extension
9. Knicks — Kevin Knox — No extension
10. Suns — Mikal Bridges — Four years, $90 million
11. Thunder — Shai Gilgeous-Alexander — Five years, $172.5 million
12. Hornets — Miles Bridges — No extension
13. Jerome Robinson (not on an NBA roster)
14. Nuggets — Michael Porter Jr. — Five years, $172.5 million
