an eto comes after the 4th year of a 6 year contract. like kobe had an eto this year and a player option for next year.
each has it own limitations, like on a player option that final year can not be for less money so some of the front loaded contracts you see will not have a player option built in. but an eto the final two seasons could have been for less money
