Below are some different options for perimeter players once the ball is entered into the post. Nothing kills an offense more than lack of movement. We never teach our players to stand still and watch when the ball is being passed around the perimeter, so why do so many teams stand and watch when the ball is entered into the post. Players should still have the same concept of moving without the ball, especially when it is entered into the post.
These options are great if you have an outstanding post player that may get double teamed a lot. The movement away from the ball will give you scoring opportunities while your opponent is focusing on one player. These options are also great if you want to have good inside-out movement to your offense. I also like these options because it forces a defense to decide if they will play the post 1 on 1 or give up something to stop a post player.
