In my opinion, the Euro Step is a good finishing move in both transition and in the half court.
I believe that it is important for players to develop moves to finish at the basket against a good or a large (or both) defender they they have practiced and are confident in. The more confidence a player has in his or her ability and moves to finish at the basket, the more they can be the aggressor rather than being dicated to by the defense.
I have posted a couple of videos below that show a couple of ways to teach the move.

The euro step is a good way for a player to avoid picking up a charging foul and also to get a clean look at a layup against a good defender.
In addition to working attacking the basket from straight on, I think it is important to also work on finishing coming from both the left and right side.
Even if you don’t like this move, I hope you will find what works for your players and develop a system to teach then and implement them in you scoring drills in practice and in summer workouts.
