LOS ANGELES (AP) Seattle goalkeeper Tyler Miller was the Los Angeles Football Club's first pick in the Major League Soccer expansion draft on Tuesday.

LAFC also chose Sporting Kansas City forward Latif Blessing, San Jose forward Marco Urena, Columbus left back Jukka Raitala and Toronto defender Raheem Edwards. The club then traded Raitala and Edwards to Montreal for Laurent Ciman, the Impact's former All-Star defender.

Coach Bob Bradley's club finally has some assets to begin shaping a roster around the three prominent players it had previously acquired: Mexican forward Carlos Vela, Egyptian defender Omar Gaber and American defender Walker Zimmerman, who joined last weekend in a trade with FC Dallas.
