If the defender's path is cut off late enough to leave OOB as the better route and he chooses not to run into the illegal screen (no time/distance), the offense has gained the advantage by forcing him to go OOB rather than direct so a no call would be acceptable. If the defender's path is cut off in time with a good screen, then the offense has achieve the desired result by pulling the defender off the cutter.
Unless I'm mistaken, in the NBA, it was illegal at one time to set a screen that would forced the defender to go OOB. Not sure if that rule still exists.
