Stephen King Traded by Seattle Sounders to D.C. United

Seattle Sounders FC announced today that midfielder Stephen King has been traded to D.C. United in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2011 MLS Super Draft.

King is in his third MLS season. This was his second campaign with the Sounders. He made 10 appearances, including three starts, in 2009.

King also started five U.S. Open Cup matches, scoring three goals, including two-game winners. He added one assist.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who has not appeared in a match this season, made eight starts and a total of 20 appearances for the Chicago Fire as a rookie in 2008. He was chosen by Seattle in the 2008 expansion draft.

“Stephen is a wonderful guy and we want to thank him for his contributions,” coach Sigi Schmid said. “We wish him all the best.”

The high point of King’s Seattle career was scoring two game-winning goals in U.S. Open Cup play, including in the semifinal against Houston.
