Playname: 2-1-2 vs 3-2 zone
1
This is an effective play vs. a 3-2 zone, gets your players moving instead of just standing still.

Start off in a 2-1-2 formation. It helps if you have a forward who can shoot the ball from beyond the arc.
2
Place your three and four men in the deep corners to try and extend the zone.

Get an entry pass to the corner from either #1 or #2.
3
After passing to the corner, the passer will cut to the short corner, while the players on the opposite side of the corner will rotate and fill.

#5 can try to seal or screen the middle defender in the top of the zone to try and get open or just occupy him.
4
#3's first look should be to the short corner. If you can get this pass then you may get an easy pass to the #5 cutting to the hoop (depending on how they are playing him).

#5 should not go lower than the dotted circle, try to keep open spacing.

#3 should then look to the #5 for a possible high-low with #1.

#3 may also have a drive and kick to #2 or #4 for a three, and can also reverse the ball to #2 or skip it to #4 for a possible open look.
5
On the reversal pass, the short corner will sprint out to the other corner, and may have an open look.

He may also be able to hit #5 on a seal in the high post.

Once #4 passes to the corner, the sequence begins again.

Most likely your open shots will come after the first or second reversal.
