PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Portland Timbers acquired former Oregon State forward Ryan Johnson and goalkeeper Milos Kocic from Toronto FC on Wednesday for goalkeeper Joe Bendik, the third pick in the 2013 SuperDraft and allocation money.

The 28-year-old Johnson had seven goals in 31 regular-season games last season. He has 27 goals in six MLS seasons with Real Salt Lake, Chicago, San Jose and Toronto, and also has eight goals in 25 international appearances for Jamaica.

The Timbers also traded the third position in the allocation ranking and either a 2013 international roster spot or a second-round pick in the 2013 SuperDraft to Chivas USA for the second position in the allocation ranking.
