Being injured has been good for Kevin Martin in at least on regard: he had time to go shopping for an agent.
Martin, the Kings shooting guard who is out at least eight weeks after suffering a hairline fracture in his left wrist Nov. 2, said he will soon sign with agent Dan Fegan. Martin hasn't had an agent since his former one began working for the Kings, as assistant general manager Jason Levien was hired last December.
"I found the right representation for me after a year and half of debating," Martin wrote in a text message.
While Martin has four years and $44.1 million left on his deal including this season, he clearly sees reasons beyond the contractual to have representation. And Fegan, as anyone in the league is well aware, is one-of-a-kind when it comes to making sure his voice is heard and that his player has a say in anything and everything that relates to him. Fegan's last Kings dealings came in the summer, when he represented Ricky Rubio in the pre-draft process that didn't go as the Spanish point guard or his agent had hoped. - Sam Amick
