Dan Fegan Rumors
We also know that the Mavericks philosophically believe that adding a physically imposing center is a key _ if not the key _ step toward returning to the NBA’s elite. We know this from their failed attempts to land big-fish free agents Dwight Howard (2013), DeAndre Jordan (2015) and Hassan Whiteside (2016). Howard and Jordan, not incidentally, were represented by Cousins’ agent, Dan Fegan, who has a strong working relationship with the Mavericks franchise. If you’re doubting the strength of that relationship after Dallas’ failed attempts to sign Howard and Jordan, look no further than Frisco for a clue: On the roster of the D-League Texas Legends is 6-11, 255-pound Jaleel Cousins, DeMarcus’ 23-year-old brother. Unfortunately, the Legends are on a road trip that had them playing in Santa Cruz, Calif. on Monday and on Friday in Idaho. Otherwise, the Cousins brothers would have had a nice in-season reunion because the Kings have been in Dallas for the past three days.
As a committed member of the Kings with a stated love for Sacramento, DeMarcus understandably has no desire to talk at length about the prospect of some day playing for the Mavericks _ and in the same organization as his brother. But when I asked DeMarcus if he believes Jaleel is in a good situation, his answer sounded like good news for fans who like the idea of the Mavericks acquiring DeMarcus. “Absolutely,” DeMarcus said. “It’s the Mavericks. It’s one of the best franchises in the league. Cuban’s a great guy. Rick’s a great guy. He’s under some good people. I’m confident in the franchise and I’m confident in his abilities, as well. I think it’s a good situation for him.”
Liz Mullen: Atlanta Hawks F Kris Humphries has signed with @ISEWorldwide. Humphries is returning to NBA agent Dan Fegan.
Independent Sports and Entertainment signed free agent power forward Terrence Jones. Jones will be represented by Dan Fegan and James Dunleavy. He was formerly represented by Wasserman.
But if Karl is leaving, that means Cousins is staying. So don’t discount former Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro, who is represented or advised or whatever they’re calling it these days by the same agent who represents Cousins, Dan Fegan.
“Just really been since I went to All Star break in Sedona (Ariz.) I’ve been spending time thinking and just trying to figure out what I can do to better myself and better my situation,” Howard said. “It was nothing against my agent. It wasn’t anything bad that he did to me. Sometimes, change is good. I just made a decision based on what I feel I needed to change. I always respect him and love him. We still talk now. But as far as him being my representation, I decided to go other ways.”
