Revs Trade 33rd Pick for Future Considerations


Without a first-round pick at their disposal, Thursday’s SuperDraft wasn’t going to be an eventful one for the Revolution in the first place. But a last-minute, draft day deal with the Seattle Sounders delivered plenty of intrigue.

Moments before it was scheduled to make its first selection in the second round (33rd overall), the Revolution traded the pick to the Seattle Sounders for future considerations.

The Revolution braintrust was seen discussing the move with Sounders general manager Gareth Lagerway, who received a hearty handshake from coach Jay Heaps once the deal was presumably closed.

Seattle subsequently used the 33rd pick to select goalkeeper Tyler Miller from Northwestern. Miller was the 38th-rated prospect on the draft board.

The Revolution, who only carried two total picks going into this year’s draft, have a third-round pick (47th overall) to use going into Tuesday’s third and fourth rounds.
