This was a play run at one time by the Dallas Mavericks in their 2011 NBA Championship run. The plan was to get Dirk and Kidd in a ballscreen read situation where Dirk could isolate at one of two spots on the floor and have proper spacing around him.
Kidd (1) hits Marion (3) in the High Post and rubs around him towards the block. He looks like he's going to set a downscreen for Nowitzki (4).
Kidd changes direction and comes back around for a handoff from Marion. As soon as Kidd breaks up top, Nowitzki turns around and sets a post cross screen for Tyson Chandler (5).
Frame 3 shows the pick and pop option with Dirk and Kidd. While this happens, 3 and 5 set a Fence action for Jason Terry (2).
If Dirk delays at the elbow and doesn't raise immediately into a ballscreen for Kidd, he'll set a side ball and slip hard to the open corner. Terry will still use the Fence. This is shown in Frame 4
