Can I use this to connect a Thunderbolt 2 drive to the Pro Display XDR (backside ports) which itself is connected to the MBP 16"

i.e. MBP 16" -> Pro Display XDR -> Lacie TB2 Rugged RAID
I don't want to connect the drive directly to the MBP.

Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter

    No, that will not work. The Pro Display XDR does not have downstream Thunderbolt ports for connecting devices, it only has a single upstream Thunderbolt port for connecting to a Mac. The 3 downstream ports on it are USB-C only, not Thunderbolt - while the connector is physically the same, you cannot plug a Thunderbolt device like this adapter and/or a Lacie Thunderbolt disk into the ports on the XDR. You can only use USB-C disk drives with the XDR, any Thunderbolt devices must be plugged directly into your Mac.
