"There were a couple of guys that we said if they’re available we’ll do it," coach Sigi Schmid said. "I think we talked to one team about trying to move up, but it was something if we could, yeah, if it made sense. But we weren’t going to go crazy trying to get there."
Here's the news from the league:
Today, Major League Soccer held a dispersal draft for former Chivas USA players following the shutdown of the club last month. A total of seven players from the roster were chosen. The first pick of the draft went to FC Dallas who selected goalkeeper Dan Kennedy.
Expansion club New York City FC bolstered its growing roster with the addition of midfielder Matthew Dunn. The only two homegrown players on the roster were picked up as forward Caleb Calvert and midfielder Marco Delgado were selected by the Colorado Rapids and Toronto FC, respectively.
The Dispersal Draft was conducted via teleconference call with representatives from all 20 MLS clubs. Each team was given one minute to determine their selection. The draft concluded when all MLS clubs forewent a selection.
