Alec Peters shared his thoughts on his two-year stint with Baskonia and explained the reason he left the team this summer. The veteran forward decided to leave Baskonia for Greek giants Olympiacos this summer.
“I went on vacation very relaxed, thinking that I was going to stay in Vitoria for another season. I wish I could say more, but unfortunately sometimes there are situations where we players have no choice but to assume that things are as they are,” Peters said in an interview in Noticias de Álava.
Peters was a steady contributor for Baskonia the last two seasons, enjoying his time as full-time starter. He has been one of the most important departures for Baskonia so far in the offseason market, along with those of Wade Baldwin IV and Simone Fontecchio.
«From my point of view, it is difficult to say that the balance has been positive, since we have not managed to win anything. Neither the ACB League, nor the Copa del Rey, nor even reach the Euroleague playoffs,”Peters reflected.
“It has been two years in which I have perhaps had success and good numbers in the individual section, but this game is not about that, it is a team sport.”
Peters spent the last two seasons with Basques averaging 9.8 points on 39.0% three-point shooting during his last EuroLeague campaign. He also competed in ACB averaging 10.4 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 13.4 PIR per 25.6 minutes in 23 appearances.
“I am somewhat disappointed in myself for not having been able to help the team achieve greater success. Leaving this aside, I have been delighted with Vitoria and its people, it is a fantastic place and it has been very comfortable for me and my family to live there.
Of course, I would have liked to give some more joy to the city.”
