Portland deals McCarty to D.C. United for Wallace

 DaxMcCarty (ISIPhotos.com)

Dax McCarty's tenure as a Portland Timber lasted all of a few hours.

Just three hours after selecting McCarty with the first pick in the 2010 MLS Expansion Draft, Portland shipped McCarty and allocation money to D.C. United for Rodney Wallace and a fourth-round pick in the 2011 MLS Draft.

Wallace is the second young and quick wide player acquired by Portland in the last two days. Both deals were for former Maryland Terrapins as Wallace and Jeremy Hall were teammates on the 2008 NCAA champion Terps.

Wallace can play left back or left wing, though Portland also selected left back Anthony Wallace in the expansion draft, meaning another trade could be in the works.
