Your question's kind of off, if a defensive player has the ball, their on offense not defense therefore he/she is not a defensive player, but an offensive. Sounds like you're trying to ask is it a foul to jump in the air when the offensive player is trying to shoot. If that's your question then the answer's no, just straight up classic man-to-man defense.

No. It's just simply a hand off or a pass.
