Dan Fegan Rumors
Marc Stein: Rockets center Dwight Howard, reached Thursday by ESPN, says in reference to earlier statement from his agent Dan Fegan: “Dan’s statement is true. I have not asked the Rockets to trade me. Nor have I talked about right trades. I want to win. I want this situation to work. I chose this team. And I’m not running because we have been faced with some adversity.”
Marc Stein: Dan Fegan, agent for Dwight Howard, issues statement to ESPN: “I’m not privy to what the Rockets are doing or not doing with respect to Dwight Howard. What I can say, with 100 percent certainty, is that Dwight has not and has never asked the Rockets for a trade. And neither have I.”
He fired his long-time agent Dan Fegan of Relativity Sports and explained his decision to reshape his career Wednesday. “The people I was with, it was a great partnership for the five years I was with it. Did a lot of great and positive things for me but it’s just a situation where I felt me and my team wanted to go different ways in how we wanted to build out team,” Wall said after morning shootaround before playing the Milwaukee Bucks. “It was a decision I made to part ways with them. … I think just getting it off my chest was kind of a relief.”
David Aldridge: Just heard briefly from John Wall re: firing Dan Fegan. “Long story,” said Wall, who added he hasn’t signed with anyone else yet. Attorney @DarrenHeitner has reported Wall will sign with Klutch Sports’ Rich Paul, who represents LeBron James, Eric Bledsoe & others.
