NBA super agent Dan Fegan was killed in a car crash in Colorado Sunday morning, according to the Aspen Times’ Erica Robbie.
Fegan, 56, was driving his SUV on Highway 82 when a bus hit him while he was trying merge onto the highway. The bus driver apparently had no opportunity to avoid the collision — additional information from the report:
The vehicles collided around 9:22 a.m. as the SUV attempted to merge on or cross the highway from Smith Way road at about mile marker 34, according to Blankenship. The intersection is just downvalley from RFTA’s Brush Creek Intercept Lot.
“The bus didn’t have time to avoid the collision,” Blankenship said, “so it broadsided the other vehicle and knocked it into the median.”
The highway was closed and traffic was diverted. The road reopened just after 11:30 a.m., according to Pitkin County alerts.
Also riding in Fegan’s vehicle were his five-year-son and an unidentified woman. Both are still alive but were airlifted to a hospital with “serious injuries.”
If Fegan’s name sounds familiar to you, it’s because he formerly represented big-time hoopers in DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall, DeAndre Jordan, Ricky Rubio, and Chandler Parsons, to name a few. He was fired “for cause” by Independent Sports and Entertainment in March of 2017.
Parsons took to Instagram shortly after news of Fegan’s death broke to pay tribute:
I type this sick to my stomach and tears coming down my face. I can’t believe you are gone. I am forever grateful for what you did for me and will never forget that. I hate the way things ended and although we didn’t always see eye to eye, we had a great relationship and created so many memories. This doesn’t seem real, or fair, but i know you are in a better place. Cherry pie to you tonight! #RipDanFegan
