DCU to receive natural third-round 2014 MLS SuperDraft selection and a conditional pick

Washington, D.C. (July 17, 2013) – D.C. United today announced the club has traded defender Brandon McDonald to Real Salt Lake in exchange for a natural third-round selection in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft and a conditional pick in 2015.

“We want to thank Brandon for all of his contributions on and off the field during the past three seasons, and we wish him the best of luck with his new club,” said D.C. United General Manager Dave Kasper.
