When doing different basketball drills, you want to maximize the amount of skill development that you get out of them. Ideally, you want every player that is involved in the drill to be getting better. With the Reggie Miller shooting drill, you have 3 players involved, and every player will be working on a specific skill. You will have a passer, a shooter, and a rebounder, and all of them will be working on a different skill during the drill.
This is also a great basketball shooting drill that you can do with your team because it moves quickly and keeps a lot of players involved and getting better at the same time. The primary player in this catch and shoot basketball shooting drill is obviously the shooter, and they are going to be able to work on different cuts, footwork, and making shots when they are tired. All are key for development as a shooter.

Basketball Drill Instructions
- The rebounder is going to start by the basket and get ready to rebound any missed shot; the passer will be at the top of the key, ready to make a pass to the shooter (needs to move around to adjust the passing angle for the shooter), the shooter will start under the basket.
- When the drill starts, the shooter will set their defender up (do every time before making a cut) and then come out either side for a straight cut, curl cut, or fade cut.
- The shooter will receive the ball for a catch and shoot shot or some kind of one dribble pull up shot.
- After the shot, the shooter will go back under the basket and then execute another cut for a shot.
- This will continue for a minute straight (you can adjust the time of the drill for the level of the player).
- After the minute is up, the players will rotate jobs.
