David Bauman Rumors
To head off any concerns about his leg, agent David Bauman has sent copies of Bogut’s medical clearance and bone scans to interested teams. Bogut said they have a “laundry list” of more than 10 teams with whom they’ll talk, and added that he isn’t worried the injury will dissuade anyone. “I don’t feel like this injury will hurt me long-term, because the bone will heal stronger than it was before,” he said.

NBA player agents David Bauman and Mitchell Butler have left Lagardère Unlimited, sources said, meaning the agency does not have a basketball player representation practice. It is unclear if the two agents were going to start their own firms or join existing agencies. Bauman and Butler did not respond to requests for comment. A Lagardère official declined comment.
David Bauman, a veteran NBA player agent who represents Metta World Peace and Andrew Bogut and is executive vice president of Lagardère’s basketball practice, was still at the company last week, although sources said he had a “key man clause” tied to Fegan’s contract. Under such a clause, an employee may leave the company if a “key man,” in this case Fegan, leaves. Bauman declined to comment.
Lagardère Unlimited has acquired the business of veteran basketball agent David Bauman, whose clients include former No. 1 NBA draft pick Andrew Bogut and Metta World Peace, in a move that will strengthen Lagardère¹s NBA practice. Terms were not disclosed. Bauman will work with agent Dan Fegan, Lagardère¹s president of basketball, and it is not known whether the deal includes what is known as ³a key man clause,² which would allow Bauman to leave Lagardère if Fegan were to leave. Fegan¹s deal with Lagardère will be up in July, sources said.
