If you could only choose one to trade, which one would you get rid of?

Vlad.

He's done nothing since he's been on the Lakers. Luke had a bad season last year, but I expect him to have a better season this year. Phil also won't trade his son Luke. :D

Money aside Vlad's the better player imo..

At least he can help spread the floor with his ability to nail open 3's...
14 and counting.....

Tough one…that’s like asking would you rather date a toothless chick or one with bad breath

Luke has 2 more years on his contract than Vlad and in the last year of his contract, he's only being paid $700,000 less than Vlad is being paid on the last year of his contract.

Luke has the worse contract so I'd rather trade him. Aside from that, both are horrible defenders but Vlad is a much better shooter and overall can contribute more.

Luke plays worse, and has the worse contract.

Luke easily. I'd send Luke away for free. That contract is just awful. Honestly awful. No team should have to have that peice of junk on their hands. If it wasn't for Luke's contract however, I would probably say Vlad.

Get rid of Luke

Vlad is at least a threat out there with his 3 point shooting. Everyone has figured out Luke's go to moves, what he can/can't do and what spots he's uncomfortable on the floor.

Vlad can fill the lanes in transition (its a good thing he learned that stuff from his Seattle days) and he's a better slasher and is a true threat curling off screens to pull off the mid range shot or a layup (how many times have we seen the Lakers run a play which resulted in a Vlad layup off a screen)

I would trade Puke at first, second and third opportunity. I would think about Vlad the fourth time.

I'd trade Luke. Vlad has a good game lets say... every 5 games or so. Luke has a good game... every 20 games or so it seems. Sure that may be an exaggeration, but IMO Vlad>Luke and I would always trade the lesser player.

I'd take Vlad over Luke any day. At least Vlad can hit the open shot, and doesn't make the Lakers go through moments like these:
