If a player is standing, holding the ball
with two hands, can he legally bring the ball to touch
the floor, even though the ball has not left his hands.
Is this a no-call, or a double dribble?

Please quote the rule and case play so I can
settle an argument.

Thank you very much.

It is NOT a dribble. 4-15 Note 3. "It is a dribble when a player stands still and bounces the ball. It is not a dribble when a player stands still and holds the ball and touches it to the floor once or more than once."

The play is legal and nothing should be called.
