Reports out of Denver today are saying that the Wizards have traded for Colorado forward, Herculez Gomez. The Denver Post is reporting that the Wizards have traded a fourth-round pick in the 2009 SuperDraft and first-round pick in the '09 supplimental draft and allocation money to the Rapids for the forward. After having a breakout season with the Galaxy in 2005, he's been unable to duplicate that success in LA or after being traded to Colorado before the 2007 season. He has 2 goals and an assist in 16 games this season.
Overall, not a bad move in my opinion, we had an abundance of draft picks (12) in the upcoming draft this year. So trading away 2 that will likely not make a big impact is a good move. The deal depends on how much allocation money the Wizards gave up to get Gomez.
