Basketball half-court offenses can be categorized as:
Coaches, don't try to use all of these basketball offenses for your team. Select an offense(s) and those plays that you feel best fit your team's personnel, size, quickness, and strengths. For a man-to-man offense, you can choose a free-lance motion offense, or a more structured, patterned offense like the Flex, Swing, Shuffle or High Low Triangle offenses. The Triangle Offense has features of both patterned and motion offenses. You will also need a zone offense. Put in a couple of set half-court plays and have a couple out-of-bounds plays and you are ready to go. Teach and establish your main offenses first, and you can add additional set plays as the season progresses. See "Teaching Basketball by Progression".

In summary, your offense can be as simple or as complicated as you want. Youth teams would be best served by keeping things as simple as possible, stressing learning fundamentals more than learning plays and sets. A simple man-to-man offense, a simple zone offense and a couple out-of-bounds plays is all you need, and all you will have time to practice. High school teams that practice every day can develop more detailed and multiple offenses, with options and plays. But again, simplicity is often the best.
