    I would prefer one hand so you can just scoop the ball and go, but no it is not a double dribble if you pick the ball up with two hands

    if you deflect a pass the ball becomes loose. during a loose ball any attempt to recover it by bouncing it will not count as a dribble until you have possession. if you catch the ball after it was loose with both hands while running, you can either jump for the layup/dunk, or begin to dribble.

    it is not a double dribble if the defender touches

    the ball.

    so yes, you can pick up the ball with 2 hand and dribble the

    ball for a lay up.

    No. But be wary, the thing is it depends on how the refs see it.
