COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — The Colorado Rapids announced a pair of moves Saturday, just hours before their road match against the LA Galaxy.
The club has traded forward Kei Kamara to Minnesota United FC in exchange for $150,000 in 2021 General Allocation Money (GAM) and a second-round pick in the 2022 MLS SuperDraft.
In a statement, Rapids Executive VP & General Manager Pádraig Smith said: "The Rapids would like to thank Kei for his contributions to the club and wish him all the best in the next step of his career."
Kamara, age 36, appeared in 38 matches for the Rapids, scoring 17 goals and assisting two.
Colorado also announced the signing of veteran defender Steven Beitashour as a free agent to a contract through the end of the 2020 season with a club option for an additional season.
Beitashour will join the club upon completion of any mandatory quarantine period under local government and MLS health and safety protocol.
