What about casting a spell and attacking in the same turn. Such as the eldritch knight ability to cast a cantrip and make a bonus weapon attack. Assuming I’m using a two handed weapon.

• Easy, let’s imagine that you start your turn with the weapon wielded right. You first let free of one hand (a not-even-a-free-action), cast your spell (an action), then regain hold of your weapon (your one free interaction) and SMASH! (a bonus action).

Can you use an Attack action (using two hands) then also be able to cast a spell as either a bonus or reaction using a free hand after the fact?
Conversely, can you cast a spell with a free hand and then also get your reaction attack of opportunity using your two hands for that?
