Portland Thorns Trade Tiffany Weimer for 4th Round Pick; Take Elizabeth Sullivan

USA TODAY Sports

The Thorns picked up another forward after making their third trade of the day.

The Portland Thorns draft featured plenty of moves in the early stages, but the hits just kept coming through the end of the fourth round. Already having been involved in two deals on the day, the Thorns took a second time-out in the fourth round before announcing that the team had acquired the Washington Spirit's upcoming pick in exchange for a player to be named later. The Thorns took forward Elizabeth Sullivan with their new pick before revealing that Tiffany Weimer was going to Washington.

Sullivan set the record for goals scored in a single season at Mississippi State College this year with sixteen and holds the school's all-time scoring record with 39 goals and 18 assists in her four years there. Impressively, however, Sullivan managed to score so prodigiously on a team that went 3-15 in 2013. For her efforts, Sullivan was nominated to the All-SEC Second Team for the last two years.

Weimer, 30, arrived in Portland midway through the season after spending a year abroad playing in Denmark's Elitedivisionen with Fortuna Hjorring. Weimer played ten games for the Thorns, providing the game tying goal in the Thorns' 3-2 comeback win against FC Kansas City in the NWSL Playoffs.
