2nd Pass Options -
a) Direct Pass to Mid Post
===================
On the pass from 3 to 5, 1 speed cuts to the basket looking for the drop pass.
3 reads his defense, D3.  If D3 collapses on to the Mid Post, 3 fans to the corner for the return pass from the Mid Post, 5.
2 screens down for the Weak Wing, 4.  2 also reads his defense. If he can beat his man and cut to the basket rather than screen, he does so.
After 3 passes to 5, 3 could also screen away for 2 or 4 as in option (b) Pass to the corner.

2nd Pass Options -
b) Pass to the corner
===================
After the pass from 3 to 1, 3 screens away for 2.
1 looks immediately at 5 who may be able to trap his defender on the high side.  If so, 1 passes to 5 on the baseline side and 5 executes a low post power move to the basket.
1 then looks for 2 coming off the screen.
2 should immediately look inside at 5 who may have trapped his defender on the baseline side and is now open for a pass down the middle.
