The Houston Dynamo are still actively trying to improve their forward options, and they took a step in that direction by swinging a trade Wednesday night.
The Dynamo traded a conditional 2014 draft pick to the Colorado Rapids for Macoumba Kandji, adding the athletic, Senegalese striker to a stable that currently has Calen Carr, Will Bruin, Cam Weaver and rookie Colin Rolfe.
For the Rapids, the trade frees up a decent chunk of cap space (Kandji's base salary for 2011 was $120,000). Kandji will forever have a place in Rapids franchise lore for coming on as a substitute in the 2010 MLS Cup and creating the play that led to George John's title-clinching overtime own goal. Kandji tore his ACL on that play, though, and missed a good portion of last season while finishing off his recovery.
What do you think of the move? Do you see Kandji finding success with the Dynamo?
