CHICAGO — When Friday began, D.C. United did not have a second-round MLS SuperDraft pick. But thanks to a three-team deal, United used the 33rd overall pick in Friday’s 2019 MLS SuperDraft to trade for the rights to Houston Dynamo goalkeeper Chris Seitz.
This move all but ends David Ousted's stay in DC. He'll probably get traded soon. Could end up overseas.

Real Salt Lake drafted Seitz in 2017 from the University of Maryland with the fourth overall pick in the draft. In three seasons with the Utah side, Seitz recorded 19 saves in seven regular-season appearances and was part of the 2009 MLS Cup champion roster.
Seitz moved around after leaving RSL, playing for the Philadelphia Union, Seattle Sounders and FC Dallas before landing in Houston in 2017. Seitz has also won two Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup titles and an MLS Supporters Shield. He will join D.C. United Jan. 21 for the start of preseason training.
