2009 SuperDraft Trade Note

  • Real Salt Lake acquired midfielder Will Johnson from Chicago Fire in a trade on 2008-08-22. In return, Chicago was to receive a natural fourth-round 2009 selection and a second-round 2011 MLS SuperDraft selection from RSL.[ref 32] However, the trade also contained a clause that allowed Chicago to receive allocation money in lieu of the draft picks. Chicago chose the allocation money.
