Sympathy for the devil
Upon walking to the Cavaliers coach Mike Brown's post-game press conference on Tuesday, I ran into agent Dan Fegan.
While I wondered aloud why Fegan was on hand, one smart aleck said, "To renegotiate."
Guffaws ensued. I stopped to talk to Fegan after I left the locker room. He said he spent two days in Cleveland visiting his client, Cavs forward/center Anderson Varejao, who is playing very well right now. He had 14 points and nine rebounds on Tuesday.
"He's so important to this team," Fegan said.
Fegan said he had just visited Charlotte, where he has clients Jason Richardson and Matt Carroll.
He said he wanted to get around and visit all of his clients in the league.
Just so you know, he didn't have horns coming out of the top of his head. He was quite friendly and very well spoken. He probably is a great guy, too, until you sit across from him on the negotiating table.
