a) 3-line

Players at the top have balls. 1 passes to 2 (or 3) who drives baseline or middle.

On a baseline drive, 1 fills behind and 3 drifts to the corner, 2 passes to 3 for a shot.

(Option - 2 can pass to 1 filling behind)

d) 3 on 2

His favourite shooting drill, it's game-like because there is defence and decision-making - drive, pass, or shoot. Defenders X1-X2 pass to attackers 1-2-3, who can drive and kick or pass for a catch-and-shoot 3 (there are no pull-ups, mid-range shots or layups). One shot only, rotate players on each possession.
 
(Variation - allow drives for open layups)
 
Progression - 3 on 3 wildcat - add a third defender, no shot restrictions, but all catches must be outside the 3-point line or on a direct cut to the basket (e.g. no passes to players cutting away from the basket inside the 3-point line).

See YouTube video - 5-person partner string shooting.
