WNBA: Video Break-down #21

Let's talk about last rotations that come towards the end of the period.  Watching this play over again, it seems the lead should have pinched the paint instead of rotating at about 9 seconds.  The play ended on the side he was at orginally.  But that's only because we watched this play over again.

This happens quite a bit to all of us who officiate enough 3 persons.    

Is there a guided mechanic for officials to rotate above a certain time left on the last play of the periods?

Was it okay for the lead to rotate to give the slot a better look on that matchup?

Your thoughts.
