Dan Fegan, agent for several NBA stars, killed in Colorado car crash

NBA agent Dan Fegan was killed in a car crash near Aspen, Colorado on Sunday, the Aspen Times reported. He was 56.

The Times reported that a bus hit the SUV that Fegan was driving. A 29-year-old woman and Fegan’s 5-year-old son were also seriously injured.

Fegan previously represented several of the NBA’s biggest stars, including DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall, Dwight Howard, Nene and Ricky Rubio. He also represented DeAndre Jordan during the Mavericks-Clippers free agency drama in 2015, though the two parted ways after the saga.

Fegan lost several high-profile clients after being involved in a messy split from Independent Sports and Entertainment last March. Fegan was terminated “for cause” and the two sides were involved in a lawsuit.

The NBA, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and some of Fegan’s clients paid their respects to the agent on Twitter following his death:
