Chicago Fire trades Hinsdale’s Grant Lillard to Inter Miami

Chicago Tribune Sports 3 weeks ago

The Chicago Fire’s turnover continued Thursday with the team trading homegrown defender Grant Lillard to Inter Miami CF.

In exchange for Lillard, the Fire received $75,000 in general allocation money from the expansion team.

“Going back to his days as an academy player, Grant always represented the club with pride,” Fire President and general manager Nelson Rodriguez said in a statement. “We appreciate what he has given the club and hope that this opportunity further advances his career.”

A native of Hinsdale, Lillard, 23, was signed as a homegrown player in 2018 after a successful collegiate career at Indiana that included All-America honors. He was also a finalist for MAC Hermann Trophy, which is awarded to the top college soccer player.

Playing time with the Fire was hard to come by, however, with Lillard making just 14 appearances across all competitions. Early this week, the Fire traded captain Dax McCarty to expansion side Nashville SC, and on Wednesday the club fired coach Veljko Paunovic and his staff.
