I think it's 4-around-1, but it can look like 5-out b/c Huff

has the option to rotate to the top of the key for a jump shot anytime another player is driving to the rim. Offense is designed to leverage bigs who can shoot the ball well and give them freedom to move around the floor.

I have gotten them confused a lot, so for simplicity I just called it "4-around-1" in this post. Regardless, we don't have the guards to play motion offense all that well (be it 4-around-1 or 5-out) because we don't have any credible threats to win 1:1 off the bounce. If the defense refuses to collapse and your guys can't score 1:1 at the rim, that offense becomes pretty ineffective.
