O1 is your safety and splits out to the ball-side wing. Diagram C. If the X3 defender stays inside, then O2 is open in the corner for the three-point shot. The inbound passer O3 has to read what the X3 defender does... if X3 goes outside with O2, pass inside to O4.
Here’s another baseline out -of- bounds play you can run against the 2-3 zone. In diagram A, your strong post player (O5) sets a screen on the middle defender X4.
Now O5 seals for inside position, gets the inbounds pass and the power lay-up (diagram B). Notice that O2 can cut to the opposite short corner for a shot, or maybe even steal the inside position from the X3 defender for a lay-up. After making the inbounds pass, O3 should move to the opposite corner-wing area.
Or, a corner 3-point shot may be open if the defenders stay inside. This play will get you an open shot from either the free-throw line, or the right wing.
