The Sounders also got second-round picks in the 2014 and 2015 drafts in the deal, and moved up to No. 3 in the allocation order, which could help in adding a U.S. national team player later this year.
Chivas USA freed up a DP spot on its roster, got salary-cap relief and moved down to No. 15 in the allocation order.
Nothing, it looks like. Just a salary dump for Chivas.
Sigi and Seattle were probably like "Meh, he's old and we don't want to spend that much money on him." So Chivas decided to throw in two draft picks to make sure Seattle accepted.
