MLS unveils players for Re-Entry Draft

List of 35 players include big names like Angel, Schelotto, Wolff

Major League Soccer today announced the list of players eligible for selection
in the 2010 MLS Re-Entry Process.  The Stage 1
Draft of the Re-Entry Process will take place on Wednesday, December
8, at 1 p.m. CT via
teleconference.  The Stage 2 Draft will take place on Wednesday, December
15, at 1 p.m. CT. All 18 clubs will have a representative
participate.

Both Stage 1 and
Stage 2 Drafts 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.  Once a team has passed,
they may no longer participate in that stage of the Re-Entry Process. Each
stage will continue until all18 clubs have passed on the available players.

Clubs must exercise
the option for, or extend a Bona Fide Offer to, players selected in Stage 1. Players that were out of contract may either accept or reject the Bona Fide
Offer. Should a player reject the offer, the drafting club will hold the right
of first refusal for that player in MLS. Players with option years left on
their contract will automatically be added to the drafting club’s
roster.

Any player selected
in Stage 1 will remain on the drafting Club’s 2011 budget at the option price or
Bona Fide Offer price until April 1, 2011.  Clubs and players may
not mutually renegotiate that price to a lower number until April
1, 2011.

Clubs may not select
their own players in Stage 1. Players will have the opportunity to negotiate
contracts and sign with their previous clubs after Stage 1 is complete, through
2 p.m. ET on December
13.

In Stage 2, clubs may
select from players that are under contract and those not under contract.  If a
player is not under contract, the drafting club will be required to make a
genuine offer to the player within seven days. In the event that an agreement
cannot be reached between the drafting club and an 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.
