Longtime NBA agent Dan Fegan dies in Colorado vehicle accident

NBA agent Dan Fegan dies in car accident

Dan Fegan, 56, died after getting into a fatal auto crash in Aspen, Colorado.

Fegan, 56, who at one time was arguably one of the most well-respected agents in the National Basketball Association, had a very public split last March with the Independent Sports & Entertainment agency he worked for.

Fegan, 56, was driving an SUV that was struck by a bus while trying to cross or merge onto Highway 82, Colorado State Trooper Gabe Easton told the Aspen Times.

The 56-year-old was killed on impact, and two others who were in the vehicle with him, a 29-year-old woman and Fegan's five-year-old son were both airlifted to a Denver hospital with serious injuries.

Fegan's family issued a statement via spokesman Terry Fahn: "Today we lost a great man, father, son and brother who always stood up not only for his clients but also for what he knew was right".

During his career Fegan represented high-profile players such as DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall and Dwight Howard.

Fegan was among the NBA's most powerful agents, one known for aggressive tactics when negotiating on behalf of his clients. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this hard time'.

There was one passenger in the bus, but the passenger and driver did not suffer injuries.

Last year, Fegan became embroiled in a messy split with his agency, Independent Sports & Entertainment, which fired him.

Fegan's first client as a sports agent was his Yale Law School (he graduated from the school) fellow student and friend Chris Dudley.

Howard reacted to the news on Twitter, writing, "My heart and prayers go out to the family, especially Dan's young son who was apparently injured in this accident". In 2016, Forbes magazine named him one of the best agents in the National Basketball Association.
