Agree. If, when a defender is trying to get to the another player, there is contact while the offensive post is moving, that is a foul....illegal screen.

A player also doesn't have to be "trying" to screen in order to screen and be subject to the rules of screening. For a player to legally block a moving opponent's path to another spot, that player has to do so by being stationary for 1-2 steps. If there is contact before that occurs...illegal screen. The only exception is if the opponent is moving DIRECTLY away from the defender.
