Re-Entry Process Stage 2 draft to take place today at 11 am PT
NEW YORK — The Stage 2 draft of the 2010 Re-Entry Process is set to take place on Wednesday at 2 pm ET/11 am PT. You can follow along live through our Twitter feed: @LAGalaxy.
Teams have the chance to select players in order to obtain their rights. They can then negotiate a new contract with the players they choose. Thirty-two players are available, including New York's Juan Pablo Angel, Sporting Kansas City's Jimmy Conrad and the Columbus Crew's Guillermo Barros Schelotto.
The only player who was available for last week's Stage 1 draft but is not available for Wednesday's Stage 2 draft is LA Galaxy veteran Jovan Kirovski. Presumably, he is looking to renegotiate his contract with the club.
The first-ever Re-Entry Process Stage 1 draft saw little activity. On that day, only two teams made selections: D.C. United picked Houston striker Joseph Ngwenya and the Columbus Crew took Sporting KC defender Aaron Hohlbein.
More activity is expected in the Stage 2 draft.
