UMONBlue....your query makes me think of coaches/fans that want a "reach" or "over the back" called. There is no such foul.

In fact, I don't know any player that can steal a ball w/o reaching for it in some way. And there are certainly great rebounders that can simply out jump an opponent reaching higher and sometimes over an opposing rebounder.

Same with a "moving screen". A player can move anywhere on the court. No foul there. Now, if the "reacher", "over the backer" or "moving screener" hold/strike, displace or contact the opponent, respectively, then we have illegal contact and thus a foul.

Otherwise, happy reaching, over the backing and move screening.
