1.  From behind the baseline D1 and D2 pass to O1 and O2 respectively.
2
...on these passes D1 and D2 will then begin their sprint to closeout and defend O3 and O4 respectively.
3
2.  O1 passes to O3 and O2 passes to O4, these passes create the perfect amount of time for D1 and D2 to closeout and defend.
4
3.  When O3 and O4 receive the ball, D1 and D2 should be in "D" position having closed out properly.  
O3 and O4 now go 1 on 1 with their D counterparts.

Decide best rotation that works for you.

Points of emphasis:
a.  D players sprinting to O players.
b.  D players closing out properly from a sprint.
c.  D players not over pursuing, keeping good balance.
d.  D players being in good D posture, and positioning as to not allow the O players penetration to the middle.

Notes:
Addition(s) can be made to this drill to set up situation(s) that need to be addressed.  I.E. Limiting the O players to shooting on the catch to work on D checking/blocking out/rebounding.  Use your imagination to create situations your players and collective team need to work on.
