Have players get a partner. Have one partner stand with one foot in the paint while the other partner stands along the 3 point line facing his partner. The perimeter players spaced evenly around the perimeter. have perimeter players begin passing the ball around. As a perimeter player is about to receive the ball his partner leaves the paint and closes out (Note: He can only leave once the ball is on its way to his partner.) Once his partner passes the ball the defensive partner retreats to the paint and remains there until his partner is about to receive the pass again. progress with this drill by having passer cut through the key and then out to another spot. His partner retreats with him into the paint but remains in the paint until his partner is about to get the pass. this is a good fitness drill and is also a good lead up to teaching the concept of Ball side and weak side play. For interest you can always place a post player in the paint who follows the ball, His partner practices hi -low coverage. The perimeter players get to practice the kick it in ,,kick it out aspect of the game. I find this drill also serves as a wake up drill when players appear to be sluggish at the start of a practice.
