Revs trade for No. 1 pick (pre-draft notes)

2013 superdraft.jpgUPDATE 7:58 a.m.: In a few early morning notes, the Timbers have acquired the No. 34 overall pick from San Jose in exchange for former Sounders forward Mike Fucito. Also, Colorado has announced the signing of Chilean winger Kevin Harbottle.

There’s been a bit of a pre-draft shakeup heading into Thursday’s MLS SuperDraft.

The biggest move? New England trading its first-round pick (No. 4) and allocation money to Toronto FC for the No. 1 overall pick.

Elsewhere, Colorado and Chicago also exchanged some picks in a big trade that, among other things, sent midfielder Jeff Larentowicz and the No. 30 overall pick to the Fire and the No. 11 pick to the Rapids.

Here’s an updated draft order.

In non-draft-related news, the Los Angeles Galaxy signed forward Robbie Keane to a contract extension and acquired midfielder Juninho on a transfer from Brazil’s Sao Paolo (he had been here on loan).

And in Salt Lake, RSL has brought back forward Robbie Findley and apparently re-signed midfielder Javier Morales.
