[MLS] In a weighted lottery to be conducted Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET, one of 13 participating MLS teams will win the rights to former California goalkeeper David Bingham, who signed a Generation adidas contract earlier this week.

Bingham was training with English club Fulham when the SuperDraft was conducted two weeks ago, and because he signed afterward his rights will be assigned in a weighted lottery. Several teams, including D.C. United, have opted out of the lottery.

The team that wins Bingham's rights is excluded from participating in subsequent lotteries for the 2011 season.

Of the 13 teams that have elected to participate, New England holds the highest probability (23.6 percent) of getting Bingham's rights. Expansion clubs
Vancouver and Portland have been placed at the bottom.

Here are the teams and their percentages:

1. New England (23.6%)
2. Toronto FC (17.9%)
3. Chicago 15.3%
4, Seattle 10.8%
5. San Jose 8.8%
6. Columbus  7.1%
7. New York 5.5%
8. Colorado 4.1%
9. FC Dallas 2.9%
10. Real Salt Lake 2.0%
11. Los Angeles 1.2%
12. Portland 0.6%
13. Vancouver 0.2%
