Colorado Rapids protect 11 players ahead of LAFC expansion draft

As quickly as it started, it was over.

The trade for Ciman cost LAFC the last two players it selected Tuesday in the five-round MLS expansion draft, left back Jukka Raitala and left winger Raheem Edwards.

"I think he is a really good goalkeeper", Sounders General Manager & President of Soccer Garth Lagerwey said.

LAFC, which will be coached in its debut season by former US national team head coach and Swansea manager Bob Bradley, was able to select players who were left unprotected by the existing 20 MLS teams.

For now, LAFC still has its first three picks from the expansion draft: goalkeeper Tyler Miller of the Seattle Sounders, forward Latif Blessing of FC Kansas City and Costa Rican global striker Marco Urena of the.

LAFC made its first signing earlier this fall when it landed Mexico global Carlos Vela from Real Sociedad. He scored three goals and added an assist in 25 games in his debut season in the league.

His global experience with the Costa Rican national team, on which he has made 58 appearances, scored 14 goals and helped it qualify for next year's World Cup, is considered a bonus for a team still taking shape.

But there is no rest in store for LAFC, which is busy gearing up to continue filling its roster in preparation for the 2018 season. "We're going to be active in discussions there".
