  • Alec Peters: Takes career to Russia

    Peters agreed Monday on a one-year contract with CSKA Moscow of the Russian VTB United League.

A 2017 second-round pick out of Valparaiso, Peters suited up for 20 games with the Suns as a rookie, averaging 4.1 points and 1.9 boards in 11.3 minutes per contest.
