Alec Peters, who had been blurbed a grand total of five times in Rotoworld history, played 28 minutes and hit 12-of-20 shots and eight 3-pointers for a career-high 36 points, a career-high nine boards, two assists and a steal in Tuesday's meaningless finale, which was a 124-97 win over the Mavericks.
If you watched this game simply because you like basketball, you REALLY like basketball. But if you happened to stumble upon Peters' performance tonight, it was pretty remarkable. His previous career high was eight points, he was drafted with the 54th pick last year out of Valpo, is on a two-way contract, and has played in a total of 18 NBA games. The Suns accidentally won the game, but it's OK because they tanked well enough to still be assured of the worst record in the NBA this season, and it was fun getting to watch Peters go all-world. Shaq Harrison, Alex Len, Danuel House and Dragan Bender all played well for the Suns tonight, whose season is mercifully over with a record of 21-61. And if you somehow used Peters in DFS tonight, go buy some lottery tickets while you're at it. Apr 10 - 10:44 PM

Alec Peters did not score with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

The Suns look like they want to give him a look here and that could continue with Alex Len (ankle) hurting. Peters hasn't played well and there's hardly a trend he'll get big minutes, so leave him on the wire for now.

Alec Peters scored a career-high eight points with two rebounds and two 3-pointers in 10 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

It was garbage time, but it was somewhat noteworthy he logged minutes next to the other non-Tyson Chandler starters for the third quarter (Payton, Booker, Reed, Bender). Just keep an eye on Peters, especially with Alex Len falling off a cliff again.

Danuel House and Alec Peters are with the Northern Arizona Suns this weekend.

That should be an indication the Alex Len may finally be getting close to full health. Peters isn't on the fantasy radar.
Feb 9 - 5:55 PM

The Suns have signed Alec Peters to a two-way contract.

Phoenix selected Peters with the 54th overall pick in the 2017 draft. He averaged 23.0 points, 10.1 rebounds and 2.0 3-pointers last season at Valparaiso. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues, as he'll likely spend most of the 2017-18 campaign in the G-League.

The Suns' No. 54 pick was used on Valparaiso PF Alec Peters.

Peters played four seasons in the NCAA and he was outstanding on his way to the Horizon Player of the Year, averaging 23.0 points, 10.1 boards, 2.2 assists, 0.4 blocks and 2.0 treys on a 60.8 true shooting percentage. However, his season ended on a down note with a stress fracture to his right leg and he wasn’t able to do much at the Draft Combine, but he did register a 6’11" wingspan with his 6’10" height. Phoenix has too many young, talented forwards to expect much from Peters this year.
