It was an eventful Friday for the Dynamo. How did they do, and what is next?
The Dynamo, intent on completely rebuilding a team that was mostly disastrous in 2016, had a big day on Friday in LA. They made a big trade, drafted three players, and acquired a veteran defender who will likely start next year.
The Houston Dynamo selected Joe Holland, Jake McGuire and Danilo Radjen in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft.
The team kicked the draft off by trading the fourth overall pick in the SuperDraft to Portland Timbers FC for the 10th overall pick, $100,000 in General Allocation Money and a 2017 International roster slot.
At last the 2017 Houston Dynamo schedule has been released! The Dynamo will spend a lot of time at BBVA Compass Stadium to start the season playing 7 of the first 10 games at home. They start the season at home against the Seattle Sounders and end the season at home against the Chicago Fire.
Dash draft Jane Campbell, Nichelle Prince and Erin Smith.

The MLS Combine is ongoing in LA right now, and as part of this week's Soccer Woodstock, the SuperDraft is on Friday. The Dynamo own the fourth pick, the 30th pick, and the 36th pick. You can see who they selected in SB Nation's two-round mock draft here.
Assuming for a minute that Houston decides to keep their first-round pick (it's been reported that teams are putting in offers), they'll have a pretty wide selection of players at their disposal.
