There are reports this morning that the Dynamo have acquired forward Corey Baird from LAFC for allocation money.

The 2018 MLS Rookie of the Year has 3 goals and 2 assists this season, including scoring at BBVA Stadium earlier this season. Baird spent 2018-2020 with Real Salt Lake before joining LAFC this season for $500K in allocation and an international roster spot. The Dynamo are reportedly sending $750K and an international spot.

The 25 year old Baird is originally from the San Diego, California area and played his college soccer for the Stanford Cardinal. Baird and Stanford won 3 consecutive national championships in 2015, 2016, and 2017. He signed with RSL in 2018 as a homegrown player. After winning Rookie of the Year in 2018 he signed a long-term extension in 2020 before being traded to Los Angeles in January of this year. The Dynamo now have another attacking option who can play wide or as a center forward.

We will have more on this as it develops.
