Sporting Kansas City's week of wheeling and dealing has ended with an exclamation point.
The club acquired Bobby Convey from the San Jose Earthquakes in exchange for an international roster slot.
Convey, who did not have his contract option picked up by San Jose after this past season, was part of the initial list of players available in the MLS Re-Entry Draft, but that is no longer the case after Sporting KC stepped up to trade for the veteran left winger.
In addition to giving the Earthquakes some flexibility in the international market, losing Convey clears up a good deal of cap space for San Jose, as Convey was on the books for $336,000 in guaranteed compensation last season. It remains to be seen what kind of deal Convey gets with Sporting KC.
The move caps a busy week for both teams. Sporting KC dealt Davy Arnaud to Montreal to re-acquire Seth Sinovic and traded a Supplemental Draft pick to Chivas USA for midfielder Paulo Nagamura. San Jose, meanwhile, swung trades for Shea Salinas and Jean Alexandre before offloading Convey.
What do you think of the move? Do you see Convey fitting in with Sporting KC? What do you make of each team's trades this week?
