September 24, 2012 Updates

Fegan represents Dwight Howard, John Wall, Ricky Rubio, Stephen Jackson, Shawn Marion, Nene, Kevin Martin, and many other high-end NBA players. Walters’ biggest client is Amare Stoudemire, but he also represents guys like Iman Shumpert and Moe Harkless. According to HoopsHype.com, combining Fegan’s clients’ salaries with Walters’ clients’ salaries would result in a total of $179,455,308 under representation, putting the combo in the #4 overall spot just behind Creative Artists Agency (which may see its position change based on the recent NBPA certification of Rich Paul).

Powerful NBA player agent Dan Fegan has left Lagardère Unlimited, which acquired his basketball player representation practice two years ago when it bought the former Blue Entertainment Sports Television. “I can confirm I am no longer with Lagardère Unlimited,” Fegan said last week. But he also noted that, “We are currently engaged in active discussions.” Sports Business Daily

It was unknown at press time what players, or agents, if any, might leave Lagardère with Fegan. Star athlete clients generally stay with the agent with whom they have a relationship. Sources said Lagardère, which is owned by Paris-based conglomerate Lagardère Group, intends to continue to be active in the basketball player rep business. Sports Business Daily

Jab aside, Stern says he is comfortable with how Howard's tumultuous situation is playing out. Howard wants out of Orlando, and the Magic are unwilling to trade him unless a deal yields what Hennigan wants as the Magic begin to rebuild: salary cap relief, young talent and draft picks. "To me, it is the soap opera our fans turn in for - the drama on the court and the drama off the court," Stern said. "When we cease to have a story popping up, we probably won't exist. "I think what it is, is that that's the way we are. That's the way it has been in baseball and the NFL and hockey and basketball. And frankly, it engages our fans, it engages our reporters, it engages our bloggers. It makes people happy, mad, sad. It's just the life in sports." USA Today

Unless Howard signs a three-year extension – which his agent, Dan Fegan, has said his client will not do with any team – Howard becomes a free agent on July 1, 2013, regardless of where he is playing. If he is still with the Magic, they could negotiate sign-and-trades next summer. SheridanHoops
