Lotteries galore in MLS

NEW YORK – Three lucky MLS clubs will land highly rated
prospects just in time for preseason as three separate weighted player lotteries
determine the fate of Cody Arnoux (pictured above), Chris Agorsor and Korey Veeder.

The league uses the lottery mechanism for: 1) players who
have completed their college eligibility and sign after the SuperDraft; 2) underclassmen
who sign Generation adidas contracts after the SuperDraft; and 3) players
who were previously offered MLS contracts and did not sign.
