Lee Nguyen Lottery Tomorrow

The lottery to allocation Lee Nguyen to an MLS team is set to talk place tomorrow. Rumor is that all the teams in the league have applied to be in the lottery. For those that don't know, the lottery is based off of a team's record over the last season. That being said, with Sporting KC finishing 5th in the regular season last year, their chances are not great. The best chance goes to the Vancouver Whitecaps who finished with the worst record last season, followed by New England.

For those that don't know, Nguyen is a former US national team pool player, earning 3 caps for the USA in 2007, including 2 in the Copa America. Nguyen left Indiana after his freshman year joining PSV Eindhoven. Nguyen played only one game for the Dutch club before moving to Randers in Demark. Once again he didn't appear much for the club. For the past few years though Nguyen has been playing in the Vietnamese league, not exactly the most high profile league in the world. Last year FC Dallas was apparently interested in bringing him in but the league did not approve of the deal. So it'll be interesting to see where he lands and if KC lands the midfielder.

so I am guessing this lottery is something like a draft in which MLS teams pick up and buy players, am I right? sorry for my ignorance!
