RSL deals Braun to TFC in exchange for Maund

Real Salt Lake announced Monday that it has dealt striker Justin Braun to Toronto FC in exchange for defender Aaron Maund.

Braun had joined RSL from the Montreal Impact in July but only managed to make two appearances with the Claret and Cobalt.

"We'd like to thank Justin for all of his hard work while with RSL," Real Salt Lake GM Garth Lagerwey said. "He's a talented player and we wish him all the best at Toronto FC."

Maund, 22, joins Salt Lake after spending his rookie season with TFC. He was selected by the Canadian club with the 12th overall pick in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft out of Notre Dame.

"Aaron is a good young player who we rated highly coming out of college," Lagerwey said. "We think he'll help us increase our speed in the back and we're excited to bring him to camp in January."
