New York Red Bulls Trade Tim Parker to Houston Dynamo FC
HARRISON, N.J. - The New York Red Bulls have traded defender Tim Parker to Houston Dynamo FC, the club announced today. New York will receive a guaranteed $450K in General Allocation Money, $300K in 2021 and $150K in 2022. The Red Bulls could receive up to an additional $600,000 if certain conditions and performance metrics are met.
"Tim has been a true professional, and everyone at the club would like to thank Tim for his role in our success over the past three seasons," said Head of Sport Kevin Thelwell. "We wish Tim all the best in Houston this season."
Parker spent the last three seasons with New York, including a 2018 season that featured a Supporters' Shield and a Concacaf Champions League semifinal appearance. The Long Island native returned to the New York-Metro Area following a trade at the beginning of the 2018 season that brought him back from Vancouver in a swap with Felipe.
After joining New York in March, Parker played 38 of the possible 44 matches in 2018. He helped anchor a Red Bulls backline to 17 clean sheets, while contributing two goals and two assists across all competitions. He also earned his first career USMNT cap and start during the June FIFA International window.
In three seasons as a Red Bull, Parker accrued 95 matches played with 8,117 minutes across all competitions. He anchored a Red Bulls backline to 32 clean sheets among all four major competitions in the U.S. Offensively, the St. John's University graduate tallied three goals and three assists, two of which came in MLS Cup Playoffs play.
