The Detroit Pistons ran this action during the 2012 Orlando Summer League. What I love about this play is that it opens up five different scoring options. Below are the options (In no particular order):
1. 1 gets to the rim to score or mid-range jumper
2. 2 gets a catch & shoot
3. 4 on the curl
4. 5 on the slip to the rim
5. 3 on the roll/pop throwback
