Can you re-phrase that question a bit, maybe offer some more explanation of what you're doing?

If you want to re-locate and existing tub that is in your basement you can do so, but it'll involve breaking up some of the concrete slab to facilitate connection to the underslab drain pipe/trap.

If you're proposing draining a tub to a floor drain somehow, no, that is not an option....Well, yeah it is but it is asking for problems and it'll look and work like a hack job. Not to mention it wouldn't even come close to meeting code.
