After a fairly tame opening stage of MLS’ Re-Entry Draft, the San Jose Earthquakes and Houston Dynamo led the action in Thursday’s second phase.
The Earthquakes used the draft to add veterans Marvell Wynne and Sanna Nyassi, while the Dynamo added young forward Chandler Hoffman and experienced midfielder Nathan Sturgis.
The opening selection in Thursday’s draft came via the Montreal Impact, who used their selection on 2008 MLS Best XI defender Backary Soumare. Meanwhile, FC Dallas used their pick to reunite the club with foward Atiba Harris, who played for FC Dallas 2009-10, while the New England Revolution grabbed Tristan Bowen.
Expansion side Orlando City rounded out the days selections with their choice of goalkeeper Josh Ford, formerly of the Seattle Sounders.
Teams now have seven days to make a bonafide offer to their selections, while any players not selected will be made available on a first come, first serve basis.
