Set Picks and Ask Teamates to Set Picks For You

A pick, also known as a screen, is when one of your teammates stands next to your opponent and acts as a “wall” that your defender has to get around. I won’t go into details of the pick and rolls, but this move will free you up on offense so it is easier to score. It will also make your opponents work harder on defense.

Use a signal to let your teammate know you’re setting a pick, such as, a fist in the air. Off the ball screens, where you set a screen for your teammate that doesn’t have the ball, are key to playing team basketball and it is what many coaches will use to develop for plays.
