Rapids Reportedly Trade For Danny Mwanga

Drew Hallowell

Colorado added some last-minute depth to the striker position on Thursday, reportedly trading for former Philly and Portland striker Danny Mwanga.

I think we all expected that the transfer movement of the off-season was finished after that giant flurry of moves that came right before and up until the MLS SuperDraft in Indianapolis. There hadn't been much movement and the team has already traveled to Dallas, so was there enough time to bring another player into the fold?

Well, guess what? Apparently there is, and his name is Danny Mwanga.

Mwanga has shown some pretty solid skills since being picked by the Philadelphia Union in the 2010 SuperDraft. His rookie year was his best, when he scored seven goals in 24 appearances. Eventually, Mwanga got stymied by Piotr Nowak in 2012 and stopped seeing much playing time before being traded to the Portland Timbers. He scored three goals for Portland last year.

SoccerByIves is reporting that Colorado is shipping over a 2015 first-round pick in exchange for the young striker.
