Luke, no doubt about it. Not very skilled, can't reliably knock down a jumper, and is probably the least athletic player on the team. Bad contract.

Vlad's biggest issue is his lack of consistent play. When he is at the top of his game, he is a threat to break the game wide open in a very short span of time. Teams cannot afford to leave him alone, he will kill them. On Luke's best day, he doesn't compare.

I'd trade Luke. He can't do much off the dribble, or shoot. His defense is.. HORRENDOUS! Keep Vlad.

Trade Luke for the following reasons:
1. They're both lazy and inconsistent, but Luke has longer left on his contract.
2. We're pretty stacked at the SF position, but Radmanovic can play the PF and spread the floor as he is bigger and a much better shooter.
3. When Radmanovic has a good game we tend to win.
4. Luke's supposedly high basketball IQ is very overrated for someone who seldom scores any points since he got paid and occasionally throws an ok pass here and there.
5. Radmanovic seems to work well with Pau and Lamar, and a big shooter is a much more valuable commodity in this league, especially when u consider Lamar, Trevor and Luke are SF options that don't really have a reliable jump shot.

I love Luke...but I'd trade him for capspace right now.

Vlad spreads the floor and is an above avg athlete (believe it or not). He's a decent passer.

I see Vlad playing a major role on this team once he doesn't have to think about the offense anymore. Once he realizes that he has the greenlight to shoot any open shot, his game will come to him MUCH easier. And many of you will kiss his feet.

Luke? I can't find a spot where he is ESSENTIAL...much like Lamar. If we can get rid of him (them), we should.

Get rid of Luke. At least Radman can spread the floor and can hit the three (although it is inconsistent). Besides you'll never ever see Luke Walton fight Tyson Chandler. :lol:

I'd trade Luke in a nanosecond it the opportunity presented itself. Luke's a cancer for this team when he's on the court. He's a great guy off the court but that doesn't change the fact that he totally inept as a basketball player. Whenever he enters the game the opposing team's eyes immediately light up and our players heads drop down in frustration. It doesn't matter how much momentum we have Luke will easily turn it around with an array of turnovers and weak shots that inevitably end up in the 4th row of the stands. If we could somehow give him away for nothing I would more than happy. Unfortunately no one is going to want to touch him or his toxic contract anytime soon. :angry:

Luke without question. At least Vlad has the ability to get hot (and for some reason, this is when Phil decides to yank him) from 3 point and is a threat and doesn't always get his shot slapped back into his face. It's annoying to watch Luke do a post move when you know the ball is just going to be blocked and go right back in his face.
