    Nashville trade Brandon Vazquez to FC Cincinnati for $150K TAM
    Vazquez was a popular pick to get selected in mock drafts, and it turns out for good reason. The 21-year-old is talented, starring for Atlanta United in Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup play, but found first-team minutes hard to come by on an Atlanta team stacked with proven veterans. He’ll now head to a Cincy squad that badly needs all the goal-scorers they can get, while Nashville pulls a hefty chunk of change they can allocate towards the rest of their roster.

    Joe Willis to Nashville, Zarek Valentin to Houston
    Nashville landed a proven MLS starting goalkeeper in Willis, who will head to the expansion side from the Dynamo after making 90 appearances for Houston since 2015. To gain his services Nashville will be sending over Tuesday expansion draftee Valentin, who has been a mainstay in the Timbers’ backline since 2016, racking up 107 appearances in the Rose City. He’ll now head to Houston, there was a need for a reliable option at left back following the retirement of the legendary DaMarcus Beasley.

    Adrian Zendejas to Nashville for $50K GAM, $125K TAM
    Zendejas has been with Sporting Kansas City since 2017 but has just one first-team appearance to his name, stuck behind starter Tim Melia. He's gotten most of his action with the club’s USL affiliate Swope Park Rangers. He’s now off to Nashville where he could find himself competing with Willis for the starting role. In addition to the Allocation Money, Sporting KC will also receive a 2020 international roster spot.

    Daniel Lovitz to Nashville for $50K GAM, $50K TAM
    Nashville get a proven MLS contributor — not to mention a USMNT left back – in Lovitz, who has made 84 appearances for the Impact since 2017 after making 41 for Toronto FC from 2014-16. He’s also worked his way into the picture with the US with 12 senior caps to his name, all in 2019. In addition to the Allocation Money, Montreal will also receive a 2020 international roster sp

    The MLS Re-Entry process begins on Nov. 26, giving teams a chance to select experienced MLS players who have not agreed to a new contract with their current club but may want to stay in the league.

    Key dates:
    • Stage 1 of the Re-Entry Draft: Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 3 p.m. ET
    • Stage 2 of the Re-Entry Draft: Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 3 p.m. ET
    The full list of players eligible for the Re-Entry Draft, Stage 1 will be released on Nov. 22 by 12 p.m. ET.

    The complete list of eligible players for the Re-Entry Draft, Stage 2 will be released on Dec. 3 at 10 a.m. ET.
    • Option Exercise Deadline on Nov. 21, 1 p.m. ET: All MLS clubs must notify the League Office in writing of players whose options they are exercising.
    Key parameters:

    Players who are eligible to be selected in the Re-Entry Draft include:
    • Players who are at least 23 years old and have a minimum of three years of MLS experience whose contract options were not exercised by their clubs. They will be available at their option salary for 2019.
    • Players who are at least 25 years old with a minimum of four years of MLS experience who are out of contract and whose club does not wish to re-sign them at their previous salary. They are available for at least their 2019 salary.
    • Free Agents that choose to participate.

    Re-Entry Draft Process:

    The Re-Entry Process will commence after MLS Cup.

    Teams select in the reverse order of their finish during the 2019 season, taking into account playoff performance. FC Cincinnati will hold the first selection and the MLS Cup champion will get the 24th pick. Nashville SC will have the 25th pick, and Inter Miami CF will have the final selection.

    The draft takes place over two stages:
    Stage 1:
    • Clubs must exercise the option for, or extend a Bona Fide Offer to, all players selected in Stage One and may not select their own draft-eligible players. Players with option years left on their contract will automatically be added to the drafting club's roster.
    • Should a player reject the offer, the drafting club will hold the Right of First Refusal for that player in MLS.
    Stage 2:
    • All players who are not selected in Stage One of the Re-Entry Draft will be made available again in Stage Two.
    • If a player is selected, the drafting club will be required to make a genuine offer to the player within seven days.
    • If an agreement cannot be reached between the drafting club and the player, the drafting club will hold the Right of First Refusal for that player in MLS.
    • Clubs may not select their own draft-eligible players in Stage Two until all other Clubs have declined selecting such players.

    Any chance they're going to open the entire stadium for this game? I'd imagine there more than a few 17s that would make the trip if seats are a available.

    Nashville SC 2020 Snapshot
    Most notable move this week: A quiet week for the expansion side as Nashville continue their inaugural roster build

    Biggest move so far: Given it’s an expansion offseason, let’s take two rather than just one. The club’s first DP Hany Mukhtar will be an attacking centerpiece, while Dax McCarty will help anchor the midfield as well as usher in the culture head coach Gary Smith seeks to create.

    Biggest question/hole: At the moment, Nashville don’t have a proven center forward nor an upper-tier center back. Is Dom Badji the answer up top? With plenty of time to go in the offseason and cap/DP flexibility, expect those to change before their inaugural MLS match.

    Rumors have it: Rumors are struggling to keep up with the actual transactions NSC are making.

    Projected starting XI (4-2-3-1, right to left): Willis; Beckeles, Anibaba, Romney, Lovitz; McCarty, Godoy; Leal, Mukhtar, Accam; Badji
