What does "baseline out of bounds" mean in this context?
He hit a few of rise-and-launch jumpers from mid-range; one out of a baseline out of bounds set, another off a jab step facing up his man after catching the ball on a seal from the mid-post and in the one instance where he worked his defender with his back to the basket, Ayton went to the middle, faked turning left, turned right and took a short fade-away jumper from just outside the restricted area.

I don't understand several of the phrases used in that.
It is spoken in a jargon (lingo) which only a few fanatical fans would understand (well, "only a few" compared to the number of English-speakers on the planet).

It is (just looking logically) a ball from the baseline, which was part of a set (a pre-arranged series of moves or passes) . . . maybe Anxious Eh?

The part about hitting a few rise-and-launch jumpers from mid-range, and there being a basket makes me think this is about basketball. If so, then hitting one out of a baseline out of bounds set, gives me reason to think this is a set of shots that result from an out-of-bounds foul at the baseline. If I recall correctly, there are 3 attempts to hit the basket in this kind of foul, but I'm not a fan of that sport, so I could be wrong.

Definitely about basketball; Deandre Ayton is a University of Arizona center and power forward position player who plans to turn professional this year.
