The first two trades during the NWSL College Draft
were complex deals
including multiple players.
When the names of the players were reported
by the Philadelphia Inquirer
and Daily News' Jonathan Tannenwald
, they included U.S. national team stars Carli Lloyd
and Christen Press
and Australian Sam Kerr
, arguably the best player in the world in
the last year.
The first deal was:
1: Houston Dash trade two players to be named later, the #6 and #24 overall pick in the 2018 NWSL College Draft to Chicago Red Stars for a
player to be named later, an international roster spot and the #7 overall pick in the 2018 NWSL College Draft.
The players in the deal: Lloyd and Janine Beckie
from Houston to
Chicago for Press.
2: Chicago Red Stars trade three players to be named later, the #6 and #13 overall picks in the 2018 NWSL College Draft to Sky Blue FC for two players to be named later
and the #15 overall pick in the 2018 NWSL College Draft.
