The Aspen Times reports that prominent NBA agent Dan Fegan was killed Sunday morning when his SUV was hit by a bus on Highway 82 near Aspen, CO. He was 56.

Dan Fegan, a longtime sports agent who represented some of the NBA’s biggest stars, was killed Sunday morning near Aspen when the SUV he was driving was hit by a bus on Highway 82, sources confirmed Sunday.

Fegan, 56, who at one time was arguably one of the most well-respected agents in the NBA, had a very public split last March with the Independent Sports & Entertainment agency he worked for. The two sides were involved in a lawsuit after he was fired.

Fegan’s five-year-old son and a 29-year-old woman were also in the SUV and airlifted to a hospital in Denver with “serious injuries.”

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

Fegan was a longtime agent in the NBA, with his clients over the years including DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall, DeAndre Jordan, Dwight Howard, Ricky Rubio, Monta Ellis, Nene, Kris Humphries, and Chandler Parsons. Several of those players reacted to the news of Fegan’s death on social media Sunday night.

In 2016, Forbes called Fegan “one of the industry’s most respected basketball agents” and said that he had “developed an outstanding reputation for his pragmatic approach to contract negotiation and client representation.”
