Yes, but only in a very specialized instance. Only when a double technical is called and it is the second technical foul for one of the offenders. In this case, the player with the second technical foul is ejected and both teams will shoot free throws, which is not normally the case with double technical fouls. The team without an ejected player may choose their own shooter, however, the other team can select any player on the opposing team to shoot in the place of the ejected player. This is effectively the only time a player will come off the bench to shoot free throws.

The only other instance this is a possibility is when a player is injured and must leave the floor prior to technical free throws being taken.

How many fouls do you get before being ejected?

Why would you be ejected for fouling too much? There's no limit to how many foul balls a player can have.

How many technical fouls can a player receive?

In the NBA, there is no cap on the total number of technical fouls you get during the season. But the NBA has penalties after you receive certain technical foul totals. After the 15th technical foul a player receives during the season, he is suspended for 1 game without pay. Consequently that player is suspended 1 game without pay for every other technical during the remainder of the season. So if a player burns up his 2 possible technicals during the first 8 games of the season, his total techs will be 16. He would then miss the following game. With that rule in place, it's only possible for a player to get 74 technicals total getting his maximum 2 techs per game and factoring in suspensions after the first 15.
