Why is Kaku's cap hit going to double?

He turns 24 in January, so he'll no longer be a Young DP.

Edit: Actually, I guess that he won't, based on this language. He'll still be 23 for a portion of the "league year".

"Young Designated Player
A Designated Player who is 23 years old (or younger than the age of 23) during the League Year (the age of the player is determined by year - not date - of birth) will carry the following Young Designated Player Salary Budget Charge:

Ages 20 and younger: $150,000
Ages 21-23: $200,000"

I like this move, but let's not compare the guy to a former MLS Defender of the Year, unless you're strictly talking style-wise.

Let's not get crazy over the signing of this prospect. He was behind Redding on Orlando depth chart last year, wasn't full time starter this year on the worse defensive team in MLS. The guy as of now is a scrub with some potential who is yet to prove he is better than someone like Ndam.

Umm...he and Redding were never on the same team. And I'd say that by looking like the one Orlando defender who didn't suck he has proved more than Ndam did.

I don't think he's going to win defender of the year, but a cheap CB with MLS experience, who can also play LB is a godsend for this team. (And one who doesn't take up an international slot, to boot.)

That dude is actually pretty damn good.

I'm with you. Having watched every USL game, he makes A LOT of mistakes.
I get the "ceiling is high" conversation, but he couldn't move past Collin and Escobar in the depth chart and honestly, a case could be made that Politz and Scarlett looked better than he did for a lot of games this season in the USL.

The dude gave me a heart attack every time he had the ball at his feet in the NYCFC Open Cup match.
