56 years old NBA agent Dan Fegan died in a car crash Sunday. Colorado authorities outed the news today. The accident happened when Fegan was driving an SUV and tried to merge onto a highway but was broadsided by a commuter bus near Aspen, and was hit by Aspen which was running at about 180 miles per hour, west to Denver.
News of Fegan's death was outed by Aspen Times, and the most devastating news was about two other casualties who accompanied the NBA agent in the SUV. After the accident, his 5-year-old son and a 29-year-old California woman were quickly airlifted to a Denver hospital in serious condition.
Fegan's family through a spokesman, Terry Fahn released a statement after the tragedy:
"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," the statement said. "We are all shocked and saddened by this tragic development and appreciate the outpouring of support. We ask for privacy at this difficult time."
Further, American professional basketball player Chandler Parsons for the Memphis Grizzlies also expressed his condolance to the demised, here is the tweet about their re-union in some unknown world, once again:
I can’t believe you are gone. I am forever grateful for what you did for me and will never forget that. This isn’t fair but i know you are in a better place and we will have a glass of red again someday. #RipDanFegan pic.twitter.com/uyQXuXaQuC

Fegan In 2016 was listed in the Forbes magazine's list of top agents for representing world-class players like Dwight Howard, John Wall, DeMarcus, and Cousins.
The Dallas Mavericks' Mark Cuban said:
"I knew Dan as a friend and a neighbor long before we developed a team executive-player agent relationship," Portland Trail Blazers president of basketball operations Neil Olshey said. "The NBA players he represented have lost a tireless advocate for their interests and well-being, while NBA teams will miss having a highly intelligent, professional representative to partner within the management and development of his clients on their rosters. Dan was the first agent who realized I was serious about basketball, winning and learning as much as I could about the game,"
Despite the horrible death in a road accident, all hands are still praying for the speedy recovery of two other casualties who got caught in a crash along with the manager. We hope God gives the strength to overcome the recent loss that recently shattered the Fegan Family.
