Mike Woodson wants Amar’e Stoudemire to become more of a low-post scoring threat.

“This summer he’ll be used to develop more low-post moves,” Woodson said. “Because the game is played inside-out, I think. [Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler] are 7-foot guys that have great athletic ability, great bodies on them and I think you’ve got to utilize them more down low.

“It might be asking Amar’e to do something a little bit different than he’s been accustomed to doing in his career, but it’s not too late.”
Stoudemire operates in the low post infrequently, but is up to the challenge.

“It’s actually great because I’ve never had a coach that asked me to work on my low-post game,” Stoudemire said. “I’ve been a pick-and-roll player my whole career. Being able to shoot the ball from the outside and also have quick first steps and being able to move off the dribble is an advantage for me. And now to apply some low-post moves will even be that much better.”
