Dan Fegan, prominent NBA agent, dies in Colorado car crash, per report
NBA agent Dan Fegan, who had formerly represented major clients including DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall, and Dwight Howard, died in a car crash on Sunday morning, according to The Aspen Times. Fegan was 56.
Fegan was driving an SUV that was struck by a Roaring Forks Transportation Authority bus while Fegan attempted to merge onto Highway 82 in Colorado at 9:22 a.m. on Sunday. Fegan’s two passengers, an unidentified 29-year-old woman and Fegan’s 5-year-old daughter, were airlifted with serious injuries and their current conditions are unknown. No one on the bus was injured.
The crash apparently occurred as Fegan attempted to merge onto the highway before running out of room. According to the RFTA CEO, the bus didn’t have time to avoid a collision and “broadsided” Fegan’s car, knocking it into the median.
Fegan had lost several high profile clients after being terminated from Independent Sports & Entertainment last March “for cause.” You can read more about the messy business divorce here, if you’d like.
However, despite his depleted client base, Fegan was still one of the most recognizable names among sports agents.
