WASHINGTON - Insider sources from D.C. United, a sometime soccer team, indicate that the Washington D.C. based team is reportedly tanking the 2017 season in an effort to have a chance at signing Lonzo Ball in the upcoming MLS Draft.
With united sending away theoretical assets like Bobby Boswell and Lamar Neagle for virtually nothing, our reporters reached out to the league for comment.
"That's not how it works," stated league representative Tonya Adams to The Nutmeg News on Wednesday. "They do know that, right?"
Requests to confirm or deny this information were not returned, however United (of the D.C. varietal) did reach out to The Nutmeg News and ask whether our publication was interested in the services of Bill Hamid and Travis Worra for the rest of the 2017 season.
Efforts to negotiate and secure the services of Bill Hamid as a reporter for The Nutmeg News is ongoing.
