Come Thursday morning, Marcus Tracy will have an MLS team to call his home.
The weighted lottery for the former Wake Forest standout, Hermann Trophy winner and Aalborg BK striker will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday. Of the 17 eligible teams for the lottery (Vancouver and Colorado are prohibited after winning the rights to Lee Nguyen and Kamani Hill earlier this season), eight are participating, MLS announced Wednesday evening.
The New England Revolution have the best odds (33.2 percent) at securing the services of Tracy, whose knees (he has been plagued by chronic tendinitis) may not be the best match for the Gillette Stadium turf. The Revs are followed by FC Dallas (19.7) and the Philadelphia Union (16.8), with whom Tracy had been training as he continues his rehabilitation from his latest knee surgery.
The other teams vying for Tracy are Real Salt Lake (9.7), the Chicago Fire (7.8), New York Red Bulls (6.1), San Jose Earthquakes (4.6) and Seattle Sounders (2.1).
Where do you want to see Tracy end up? Which team of the eight do you think would be the best fit? Disappointed that your team is not participating in the lottery?
