D.C. United came into today with one high pick at the 2018 MLS SuperDraft, but before most people were even at the convention center, they traded the #3 overall pick to LAFC for $200,000 ($100,000 in TAM, $100,000 in GAM). So as of right now, the draft is not really going to impact the Black-and-Red.
However, it should still be an interesting day. Los Angeles FC has two of the first three picks now as they build their roster in their expansion season. The New England Revolution have two of the top ten picks as they start the Brad Friedel era. Teams will panic and make deals. Things are going to happen.
So hang out with us, whether United gets themselves back into the draft or not!
