This option is used a lot by the Professional basketball teams to set up their good long jump-shooter from the top of the slot.

The men line up across the free throw line, and on the slap of the ball #4 takes a quick step back. #3, and #5quickly use a lateral step to close the gap. #4 gets a long pass from #6 for the jump shot attempt. If he does not get the pass, he quickly moves into the corner for the pass-in. #2 and #5 have criss-crossed for possible pass in while #3 drops back as the safety valve.
