Kenny Cooper Opts Out Of Re-Entry Draft

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Cooper is one of many that have opted out of the Re-Entry process.

Just hours before the first stage in the 2013 MLS Re-Entry Draft, forward Kenny Cooper is one of a few players that have opted out of the re-entry process.

Originally MLS sent out a list of 68 names earlier this week, now the list is down to 58 as Cooper and several others are out of the running. Only David Ferreira and Ugo Ihemelu are available from FC Dallas to be selected now.

So what does this all mean for Cooper and FC Dallas?

Players had until 4pm CT Wednesday to opt out of the Re-Entry Draft, which is usually the case when a deal is imminent with their current club. Several deals were announced yesterday including a big trade involving Mauro Rosales going to Chivas USA.

Now it also could mean that a trade is imminent as well for Cooper. His large salary was something that would be tough for FC Dallas to bring back next year, especially given his production in 2013. That could also make it tough to trade him within MLS too. Only a couple teams come to mind that could use a forward like Cooper, with D.C. United being one of them.
