Dan Fegan, prominent NBA agent, dies in Colorado car crash, per report

Famously known for representing athletes in the world of basketball over the years, veteran NBA agent Dan Fegan died in a fatal auto crash on Sunday.

Fegan, 56, was driving an SUV and tried to merge onto a highway when he was broadsided by a bus near Aspen, 180 miles west of Denver, Colorado.

Two passengers riding with Fegan, his 5-year-old son and a 29-year-old California woman, sustained serious injuries and were airlifted to a hospital in Denver, Easton told the newspaper.

In 2016, Fegan was ranked 23rd in Forbes' list of Sports Agents. The Roaring Fork Transportation Authority CEO said the driver didn't have time to avoid the collision. "We ask for privacy at this hard time".

They were second best in all facets and struggled to retain possession long enough to break down the green wall or create chances. He was sitting down and we were talking all week. "It is very exciting and we need to use it in the right direction".

Also in Fegan's vehicle were his five-year-son and an unidentified woman.

Fegan lost many of his high-profile clients following a messy breakup with his former employer, Independent Sports & Entertainment, resulting in both parties filing lawsuits against the other. "It created a hard situation, but Fegan was determined to do what he thought was best for his client", Jeff Zillgitt wrote.

Bad news for Fegan's family. Fegan had represented many National Basketball Association players, including John Wall, Demarcus Cousins and Dwight Howard. In 2016, Forbes magazine named him one of the best agents in the National Basketball Association. "I knew I liked you since the moment we met", the Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic wrote on Twitter.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban remembered Fegan as a man with a good heart.
