MLS Re-Entry Draft: With Draft Complete, Teams Wheel And Deal

Three trades were made after the re-entry draft wrapped up.
The transfer madness of the MLS offseason didn't let up after the conclusion of the second stage of the re-entry draft as MLS teams continued to make deals in order to hold on to their newly acquired players.

First off, the Los Angeles Galaxy sent promising young forward Tristan Bowen to Chivas USA in exchange for allocation money, which could be used to sign Galaxy draft selection Juan Pablo Angel. Galaxy coach Bruce Arena hinted Angel could be signed as a third Designated Player, following Landon Donovan and David Beckham.

Leaving Los Angeles almost as quickly as he'd been selected was Luke Sassano, chosen with the rteam's second pick in the Re-entry draft but sent to Sporting Kansas City in a deal that sees the Galaxy acquire the rights to veteran full-back Frankie Hejduk.

In the final deal of the day, goalkeeper Chris Seitz was sent from Seattle Sounders FC to FC Dallas in exchange for Dallas' fourth-round pick in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft. Seitz had been selected by Seattle in the re-entry draft from the Philadelphia Union and now goes to Dallas to learn under the tutelage of Kevin Hartman, with a view towards taking the No. 1 spot when the 36-year-old Hartman calls it a day.
