The Wizards defensive shake-up: Enter Thomas, exit Escobar

The trade that brought Shavar Thomas back to Kansas City yesterday for two second-round picks* and some allocation money was, perhaps, the first of many shake-ups the Wizards will be making to try and fix their defense. To make room for him, the Wizards released defender Pablo Escobar before Major League Soccer’s guaranteed contract deadline. (More moves might be ahead as the Wizards look to solidify their beleagured back four.)
