Links: Faried stands up for civil union rights, Mozgov to be traded?

This past week a Colorado State committee passed a Senate Bill 11, which will allow gay couples to form civil unions. While the bill must go through a number of steps before ultimately reaching the governor’s desk in March, there’s no doubt that equal rights for gay and lesbian couples in the state of Colorado are on the upswing. Showing his support for this movement is Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried, who recently appeared in a One-Colorado.org civil union advocacy video with his with his two mothers. No matter what side of the argument you fall on, it’s important to acknowledge Faried’s willingness to stand up for what he believes in, especially given the controversy surrounding this particular issue.

In other news, the Denver Post’s Chris Dempsey is reporting Timofey Mozgov is “unlikely to be with the Nuggets” in less than a month. We’ve heard trade rumors surrounding Mozgov for quite some time now, but this type of definitive language suggests his departure from the Nuggets is more imminent than we may have suspected.

    I just dont know what we would get in return for Mozgov? I dont know much that we could get that could make an impact immediately.

    Can we trade the big man with like Iguodala for like Dwyane Wade or something good?

      This trade sucks for both sides. The Heat would never take AI and Moz for Wade. And as a Nuggets fan, I don’t want Dwayne Wade because he’s getting old and I think he’s going to break down sooner rather than later.

    Mozgov is a piece in a trade for an upgrade OR a protected 1st round pick.

    Good on Faried. He’s a great kid who knows how to stay intense on the court and be a stand up guy off the court. Lots of kids could learn a thing or two from him. Especially how to stay humble.
