A Set Shot in basketball is a kind of shot done or taken without jumping or leaving the floor.

In many professional leagues like the National Basketball Association (NBA), Set Shots are rarely done because if a player does not jump when releasing the ball, it usually makes it easy for a defensive player to block the shot.

Those who often do set shots are usually taller players like the power forwards and the centers. However, it is commonly done during free throws since there is no one to block the shot.
