Marshall among 32 players in stage two of MLS re-entry draft

Sounders FC and veteran defender Tyrone Marshall apparently did not come to a contract agreement in the negotiation period after the re-entry draft’s first stage last Wednesday. He is among the 32 available players for the second stage, which will take place this Wednesday at 11 a.m. PT.

35 players were available in the first stage, with Joseph Ngwenya going to D.C. and Aaron Hohlbein selected by Columbus. L.A. Galaxy forward/midfielder Jovan Kirovski was taken off the list, which I assume means he’s working out a new deal with the team.

Here’s the league release:

32 Players Available in Stage 2 of Re-Entry Process

MLS to conduct Stage 2 of the Re-Entry Process on Wednesday, December 15th at 2 p.m. ET

NEW YORK (December 13, 2010) – Major League Soccer today announced the list of players eligible for selection in Stage 2 of the the 2010 MLS Re-Entry Process. The Stage 2 Draft will take place on Wednesday, December 15th at 2 p.m. ET. All 18 clubs will have a representative participate.

As was Stage 1 on Dec. 8, the Stage 2 Draft will be conducted in the same order as the traditional Waiver Draft, with Vancouver selecting 17th and Portland selecting 18th.

Each club may either select a player from the eligible player list, or pass. When a club passes, its participation in this year’s Re-Entry Process concludes. The draft will continue until all 18 clubs have passed on the available players.

In Stage 2, clubs may select from players who were available, but not selected, in Stage 1 and have not reached a new agreement with their 2010 club. If a player is not under contract, the drafting club will be required to make a genuine offer, as determined by MLS, to the player within seven days. In the event that an agreement cannot be reached between the drafting club and the out-of-contract player, the drafting club will hold the right of first refusal for that player in MLS.Clubs may select their own players in Stage 2 only after all other clubs have declined to select those players.

If a player is not selected in either stage of the Re-Entry Process, that player will be available on a first come first serve basis to all clubs.
