In the 5 out motion, players are spaced around the perimeter. I like to use the 3 point line as a guide.
Players can pass and screen or pass and cut. Off the ball they may down-screen, flare screen or back-screen. They can screen or stagger screen for cutters coming out of the middle.
Players may dribble penetrate and look to score or dish.
Players may cut through the middle but can not cut and stay in the post nor can they post up. The object of the 5 out motion is to keep the middle open for cutters and dribble penetrators so the players can exploit match-ups on the perimeter.
