Coaches brainstorm alternatives ranging from drag screens in transition to sets of varying complexity. Simple may help many players keep the concepts straight.
The simplest action begins with conventional ball screens opening drives and rolls.
Adding a cross-screen (small screens big) complements the high ball screen.
The talented post player can get into high-low action.
More complexity brings maddening options, from an initial post-up (if switched) to staggered screens for a three in Spurs action.
Mismatches create scoring chances and potential foul trouble. The tradeoff is getting away from your basic offense into less familiar territory. Including some small on big screening in core offense might help.
This off season,NBA coaches will be putting a ton of time into looking for ways to attack switching defences. Whilst it’s a popular perception that setting a PNR, forcing a switch & then attacking D off the bounce is the only way to do this, its far from accurate.
