1) Simple version

5 is the inbounds passer. 3 and 4 fake towards the ball then break up the sidelines. 2 screens away for 1 then opens to the ball as a secondary receiver. 1 or 2 should be able to dribble up the middle or pass to 3 or 4 on the sidelines.

breakthroughbasketball.com - Against a zone press that pressures the inbounds passer, you should easily be able to inbounds the ball to outside receivers 3 or 4. Against a man-to-man press that is denying the inbounds pass, you want 3 and 4 to break upcourt as shown. 1 and 2 screen for each other.

Adjustment

If the defence is denying the sideline, 3 fakes long and cuts back to the middle. 4 goes long.

The ballhandler looks for 3 in the middle then 1 and 2 cut up the sidelines.

The ball can be reversed to 5 if 3 is denied.

hoopsu.com - Against a zone press, always have somebody in the middle of the floor. 4 deep should always move opposite the ball.
