Where to follow the Union’s draft aka the expansion draft?

Has anyone seen anything on where? I would assume the MLS web site. The draft is at 10 a.m. our time. Trading may resume after the draft. Sounders FC wasn’t close to making a deal during the short window yesterday.
A couple of you made some comments in jest about our columnist, Steve Kelley. I’m not here to defend Steve, but let me assure you, the man LOVES the game and has followed it for longer than I have been alive. I know you are supporting me and I appreciate it more than you know, but Steve is a big sports voice in this town and a major advocate for the sport, another reason we were praised for our coverage.
A lot of reaction to James Riley not being protected and the points are valid. All we can do is wait and see what happens tomorrow. That being said, I’ll link to this post from Soccer by Ives that one of you made me aware of, which predicts that Stephen King could be the Union’s choice from Sounders FC.
King did show some upside this season but also dealt with injuries. He scored in the U.S. Open Cup as I recall. Solid young player, I know Seattle would miss him.
“Squared” – Nigeria and Ireland here in 2018 would be AMAZING. Now that’s a thought. Plenty of green in the stands for sure.
