So now Kemar wants a trade. Unbelievable. This is getting out of hand. Something is up with this locker room big time....

"MLS All-Star defender Kemar Lawrence has requested a trade from the Red Bulls, a move that came after the club refused his request to renegotiate his contract, sources confirmed to SBI."

 

I don't know, if they're going to tear the team down and rebuild, it's going to be a rough few years with or without Lawrence.  If that's the case, might as well trade him.  If they're seriously going to bring in 3-4 high quality players (like starter level, not academy/USL types), then maybe keep him.

I think Kemar wants to get paid more than he wants a trade.  Considering how essential he is he isn't wrong for asking.  He should be paid at least as much as Parker if not more.

I agree he should be paid more. But how does him requesting a trade = him wanting a raise? He would keep the same salary if he was traded, no?

Wouldn't blame wanting to get paid accordingly on locker room issues, or anything other than knowing your own value, for that matter.

A team that spends assets to get an unhappy player would be unlikely to keep him unhappy and would therefore offer him a raise. If they don't, they'd have to turn around and trade him for even less to a different team.

Realistically the guy deserves a TAM-level contract. Timing sucks though as no team in the world loves negotiating a raise less than 12 months into a new contract. If I'm Red Bull I still give it to him, give him the TAM that was going to Rzatkowski.

He's been underpaid for years so it's hard to blame him. Especially if he compares his paycheck to Parker or Long. Good job Armas and Hamlett, now both our outside backs from a historically great defense (2018) are disgruntled and at least one other is overpaid...

Pay him
Give him TAM

The guy just signed a deal at the end of last season.  

 

Sets a bad precedent with re-doing a deal that soon but Taxi is worth it.

 

Either way, locker room is clearly a disaster now.

He would only be asking for a trade if we refused to give him a raise. And if that's true...my faith in this club is at an all time low. He's only getting paid 380K.

Why is everyone worried?

 

Buckmaster can play left back in a pinch.
