This is absolutely heartbreaking news. 

On Sunday night, it's been reported and confirmed that popular NBA agent Dan Fegan was killed today right outside of Aspen in a fatal car crash.

Fegan was struck by a bus while driving on Highway 82 in Colorado. Fegan was just 56 years old and was rated by Forbes as the 23rd best sports agent.

Fegan was a highly acclaimed agent, having represented stars in the league such as DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall, Dwight Howard, JJ Barea, and Nikola Mirotic. 

This tragic news comes less than a year after Fegan filed a lawsuit against his former employer Independent Sports and Entertainment (ISE). The suit accused several employees of ISE from attempting to undermine Fegan and steal his clients all while discrediting him in the process. 

ISE had since filed a similar suit claiming Fegan was attempting to "poison" ISE's business by attempting to turn its own employees against it.

Our thoughts are with Dan Fegan's friends and family during this difficult time.
