Sal Zizzo was probably not coming back to Sporting Kansas City next season since the club declined his option recently. That did not stop New York City FC from taking him in the MLS Expansion Draft with their ninth pick.

Sporting Kansas City was allowed to add a player to the protected list when Zizzo was taken and manager Peter Vermes did not hesitate to protect Jacob "The Answer" Peterson.
