I may be confused but I think I saw "double usage" of the same money here.

I don't believe the minimum withdrawal from a Traditional IRA is available for conversion to a Roth. They are withdrawal funds. However, if you have earned income of at least $2,000/year and are within the AGI limits, you may use up to $2,000/year of the withdrawal proceeds for a Roth contribution.
