Carmelo Anthony reportedly wants to become a free agent, so it's time to line up the potential landing spots for him next offseason.
When considering Melo's options, there are a few important numbers to keep in mind.
The first is the projected salary cap, which is $62.1 million for the 2014-15 season, per Hoopsworld's Eric Pincus. Only the New York Knicks can exceed that number when signing Anthony this offseason, should he exercise his early-termination option.
The second number is Anthony's max-possible deal in free agency for anyone but New York, which is $23.5 million per season, or 105 percent of his last salary.
Another thing to keep in mind is that teams must renounce free agents in order to use their cap room; otherwise, they remain on the books as a cap hold. Also, when factoring in future salaries, you have to account for roster-spot holds up to 12 players ($507,336 per spot) and first-round-draft-pick holds as well.
Got all that? Then let's get to the list of Carmelo Anthony's free-agent options in the 2014-15 offseason.
