Minnesota United coach Adrian Heath ponders an imponderable 2020


In turn, Heath and his team have made moves, such as a trade with Colorado for striker Kei Kamara — MLS' fifth-leading all-time goal scorer — finalized Saturday.


The Loons will send a 2022 second-round SuperDraft pick and $150,000 in 2021 general allocation money to Colorado for Kamara, a 6-3 forward who has scored 129 MLS goals since he made his league debut in 2006.


Kamara, 36, and newly acquired backup keeper Adrian Zendejas will be available to play when each completes a mandatory quarantine period, likely by Wednesday's game at Columbus Crew.


"We knew we had to make a move and we feel we have added another really important piece to our already potent attacking core," Heath said in a team statement.


• Newcomer Bakaye Dibassy started his second consecutive game, this time at left center back for Jose Aja.


Griffin Hebert made a spectacular 4-yard touchdown catch underneath the goal post with 14 seconds left as Louisiana Tech rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat Southern Mississippi 31-30 on Saturday night in a Conference USA opener.
