- 2009 MLS SuperDraft, Dema Kovalenko, Mike Magee, Trades
The Los Angeles Galaxy picked up a pair of players last night in deals that should help the club out in the coming season.
Real Salt Lake has trade Dema Kovalenko to the Galaxy for draft pick and some allocation money. The Galaxy also acquired forward Mike Magee from New York earlier in the day for a draft pick.
The Red Bulls picked up a second-round pick in the deal in today’s draft. No word yet what kind of pick RSL got out of this deal.
The Galaxy traded the rights to ‘retired’ defender Ty Harden to the Colorado Rapids for a third-round pick. LA acquired the 35th overall pick in the draft for Harden’s rights.
I have to give it to Bruce Arena, sure the names aren’t flashy as some would possible like but he is addressing needs the club probably couldn’t address in today’s draft.
