Phil: “I put [Luke] out there for reasons that are internal in our organization”

    Very interesting stuff from Phil. Some people may think this translates to possible trade(s). Either way, we’ll try to keep an eye on it…

    L.A.Times: re: Keeping Luke in starting lineup?: “I put him out there for reasons that are internal in our organization and Vlade got to play a little bit. But Vlade’s done a good job starting out there. I’ve been pleased with what he’s done with our team in the last week and a half.”

      The reason Luke started was Vlad was late to practice and PJ decided to start LUke. Luke has now earned his starting job through his play.
