Will teams wait on Vogel?

ESPN reported on Wednesday that Frank Vogel is now "coaching for his job" following Indiana's stunning second-half dropoff and early struggles in the first round of the playoffs. Surprising? A bit, considering that Vogel was a Coach of the Year candidate earlier in the season, but when a good team underperforms for several months in a row no coach can avoid the "hot seat" chatter.

ESPN's Marc Stein explained the severity of the situation a day after Indiana's Game 2 win over Atlanta, which knotted the series at 1-1. "Based on everything I'm hearing, it's going to take more than just getting out of this series to kind of ease the pressure on Frank Vogel," he said.

Here's a look at what this could mean in the weeks and months ahead for other teams around the league.

For much of Alex Poythress' freshman year at Kentucky in 2012-13, the highly touted forward was projected as a lottery pick in what was regarded as a poor 2013 draft class. But after averaging 11.2 points and and 6.0 rebounds in his first season in Lexington, Poythress delayed his NBA entry and returned for a second season at UK.

That decision could very well come back to bite the 6-foot-8, 239-pounder. After struggling through a disappointing sophomore campaign in which his numbers declined across the board, Poythress, the No. 28-ranked player on Chad Ford's early 2015 Big Board, announced Wednesday that he'll be returning for a third season under coach John Calipari. A good move? Maybe. But ESPN Insider Jeff Goodman believes the forward now faces an uphill battle to reclaim the first-round hype that once surrounded him.
