Team trades star player for hotel accommodations

The Fort Lauderdale Strikers executed a trade that sent Walter Restrepo to the San Antonio Scorpions in exchange for hotel and transportation arrangements during the club’s trip to the Lone Star State for a game this coming June.

The Crockett Hotel, a business partner of the Scorpions, would otherwise charge $169 per night during the days in question to put two men to a room.

Take that times a dozen, to account for at least 24 members of the organization - players, coaches, medical staff, etc. - and it comes out to $2,028 per night, which brings the total value of the lodging portion of the trade to $4,056.
