It'll still be a foul, but not a shooting foul. You need to be shooting the ball by the time the foul happens to get free throws. It was considered too much of an advantage to the shooter. Gee, you think? (There are other rule changes in the article, including a redesign of the 24 second clock, adding 1/10th seconds) ------- "Rip-through" moves, in which an offensive player swings the ball into a defender's outstretched arm and then attempts a shot once he has created contact, will be considered non-shooting fouls if the contact begins before the offensive player starts his shooting motion. Also, on drives to the basket, a shooting foul will be called only if contact occurs after the offensive player has begun his shooting motion, not after he has initiated his leap toward the basket.
