I’ve been researching conceptual offense (including BDT Offense) for this upcoming season with my high school basketball program. We were strictly 5-out last season but struggled at times because of the single gap spacing and limitations of this alignment with penetration reactions.
To help, I’d like to flow from 5-out spacing in our transition offense into 4-out spacing (corners, wide slots) in the half court through the use of triggers. The challenge is that we don’t have a player who would do well staying anchored in the dunker spot. In fact, our two biggest/best players are also our best shooters. Does anyone have ideas in relation to a “positionless” strategy for using the dunker spot or maybe a system that has select players interchanging into and out of the dunker spot?
Maybe some of you have ideas for penetration reactions in the 5-out that doesn’t turn the offense into just the good ol’ fashion Read and React “circle motion”?
