While the Wizards are waiting to see if star forward Eddie Johnson is headed to play in England, one player is definitely on the move.
Defender Nick Garcia was traded Tuesday to the expansion San Jose Earthquakes for the No. 1 overall pick in Friday’s MLS SuperDraft, Garcia told The Star.
“It caught me by surprise,” Garcia said.
Garcia was the Wizards’ first pick, second overall, in the 2000 draft out of Indiana. He was part of the Wizards team that won the MLS Cup in 2000.
