My story on Wednesday's trade that had Jamil Walker shipped out and Hamed Diallo in is finally posted at carynews.com. Sorry for the delay. I didn't have a chance to catch up with Diallo until this morning. I nabbed him quickly at RDU airport before he and the rest of the team boarded their plane for Minnesota.
For other perspectives on the deal, The (Portland) Oregonian's Boaz Herzog has a report from the Timbers' perspective.
And The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle's Jeff DiVeronica weighs in here and here from the Rhino's perspective.
Though Diallo has struggled to find the net this season, see this video montage of a few of Diallo's goals that offers a glimpse of the Ivory Coast native's knack for the net, courtesy of the Triangle Soccer Fanatics blog.
