Slot to Wing DHO

The Slot to Wing DHO entry into Motion Offense can present teams with a number of scoring opportunities.


My personal preference is to run an offense that relies on the reads of our players. There is so much in the game in which we can not control that it seems obvious that implementing an offense in which the players can freely make decisions based on the defense makes sense.


One concept that I have implemented within our Motion Offense is the Slot to Wing DHO. In theory we would like to make our initiating slot to slot pass. However, if that pass is not available we want to be able to easily flow into our offense with another entry. In this instance we would simply conduct the slot to wing DHO and enter our half court offense seamlessly.


In this post I wanted to present some examples of how that might look - and some options that might be available to the offense:



A. Attack the Gap


The action starts with a slot to wing dribble handoff. the receiver (2) then immediately looks to attack the gap that has been created by the action.


As simple as this action is there will undoubtedly be opportunities for the ball handler to attack the basket.


On the catch all of our players should be undergoing the same thought process on each touch.


Read Progression:

  1. Shot

  2. Drive

  3. Pass

For our players this is the typical decision progression when a player touches the basketball. Here is an example of a catch and basket attack.
