[MLS 2014 COUNTDOWN] D.C. United's efforts to rebuild its backline continued with the acquisition of 31-year-old Jeff Parke from Philadelphia. Parke, who grew up in the Philadelphia area and moved to the Union from Seattle in 2012, joins Bobby Boswell, taken in the Re-Entry Draft, to give D.C. two new veteran defenders in the middle of the backline. They have played 498 regular-season games between them.

D.C. United traded homegrown defender Ethan White and the top spot in the allocation ranking to the Union for Parke and the No. 6 spot in the allocation ranking. D.C. also finalized the transfer of Canadian defender Dejan Jakovic to J-League club Shimizu S-Pulse.

-- Retired Chris Albright has joined Philadelphia’s technical staff as assistant technical director. The Philadelphia native spent the last two years of his 15-year MLS career with the Union.

JIMENEZ AND BERHALTER REUNITED. The Columbus Crew acquired midfielder Hector Jimenez to the LA Galaxy for allocation money and exchange of draft picks. He is reunited with new Crew coach Gregg Berhalter, whom he played with at the Galaxy in 2011.

The Crew, which was without a first-round pick in Thursday's SuperDraft after the trade with New England for the rights to Michael Parkhurst, get the Galaxy's first-round pick (14th overall) for its second-round pick (23rd overall).
 
Jimenez, who played at Cal, spent the past three seasons with the Galaxy, appearing in 43 regular-season games and scoring four goals.

SCHULER LOTTERY. The San Jose Earthquakes was the winner in the weighted lottery for former University of North Carolina forward Billy Schuler, who spent his last two seasons in Sweden with Hammarby. The Quakes had a 95.7 percent chance of winning. Real Salt Lake was the only other team to enter the lottery.
