Powerful agent Dan Fegan is set to join Relativity Sports and serve as president of the firm's basketball division, according to Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal. Fegan will bring his 40 NBA clients, including Dwight Howard, Shawn Marion, and John Wall while reporting to the company’s COO head many in charge of sports, Happy Walters.
Fegan's 40 clients in addition to Walters' twelve means that Relativity is now one of the largest basketball practices in the United States. The partnership comes just five months after Fegan left Lagardère Unlimited, and sources said Fegan and Lagardère have settled all of the issues between them, including future fees. Walters already represents notable NBA players such as Amare Stoudemire, Ty Lawson, and Corey Brewer.
A few agencies represent the majority of the NBA's 450 players, and this move solidifies that trend. Relativity now joins agencies like CAA Sports, Wasserman Media Group, Priority Sports & Entertainment, BDA Sports, and Excel Sports Management in the exclusive club of NBA power agencies.
We first heard word of a partnership between Fegan and Walters back in September.
