Two former Indiana University star basketball players received contract extensions this week for their respective NBA teams. 

Former IU guard Victor Oladipo re-signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder on a four-year, $84 million deal, according to ESPN.

His college teammate, Cody Zeller, also received a new deal. Zeller signed a four-year, $56 million deal with the Charlotte Hornets, according to The Associated Press.

Oladipo played for IU until his junior season, when he left for the NBA Draft in 2013. Zeller left after the same season, his sophomore season.

Oladipo and Zeller are two of the most prolific players in IU history, leading the team to a No. 1 ranking for much of the season. IU went to the NCAA Tournament as a No. 1 seed before losing to Syracuse in the Sweet 16.
