Carmelo Anthony, should he exercise his ETO (Early Termination Option) by late June, is eligible to sign for up to five years and $129,135,806 with the New York Knicks and $95,897,372 over four years with another team as a 2014 free agent. Anthony and his agent will be seeking those amounts, however they are likely going to be turned down by the teams that interest them.

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.
