Can you hoist someone to make a dunk ?

Is it in the rules to hoist someone to make a jam ?

No. Would be a travel I imagine?

I don't think so:

- To pass or shoot for a field goal, one foot or both feet may be lifted but may not be returned to the floor before the ball is released from the hand(s)."

Unless by hoisting someone they are considered to have their feet on the floor (by extension), I can't see how it would be a travel.

This doesn't account for alley-oops though, where the shooter wouldn't have control of the ball until they're mid-air.
