   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The NBA Prospects Of The Unsigned NBA Draft Picks

Peter Fehse (49th pick, 2002)

- Peter Fehse news and notes are so scarce that this website is one of the first hits returned for his name. A lengthy breakdown on the subject of Peter Fehse was written in December 2009, upon his trade to Utah:

Peter Fehse [...] was drafted in the second round in 2002 as an absolute longshot based on his combination of height and athleticism. He never amounted to anything NBA calibre, partly because he never had NBA calibre to begin with, but also because of constant injuries.

It has been over seven years since Peter Fehse was last heard of in NBA circles; indeed, he's barely even heard in German basketball circles either. Fehse has not played this season, played in only two games last season, and did not play in 2007/08, all of which is due to injury. As long shot projects go, he was about as long shotty as a 49th pick can be, and is even more of a throw-in than Andy Betts was when he was traded for Peja Stojakovic in July 2006.


A follow-up in February of 2010 added this:

Fehse's season last year was, inevitably, cut short by injury. Fehse has battled injuries since the day he was drafted, and they are the reason he never developed as a prospect. In fact, he's been set so far back in recent years that he's now with a club in the German third division; the BSW Sixers. BSW, coached by recently retired former Mississippi State guard Chuck Evans, are 7-7 in the Regionaliga North, which ranks two rungs below the Bundesliga. Stats are unavailable, but he scored 13 points in their last game.


Hopefully this communicates the general idea.

The BSW Sixers are a semi-pro team, and Fehse doubles as a player and assistant coach. The one time German national team member is, essentially, done with professional basketball before the age of 28. Furthermore, Seattle admitted they never scouted him before drafting him. It's been said before, and yet it will be said again - the copycat tendency for drafting tall reasonably mobile foreigners with second round draft picks in the early part of this century was bloody insane. Players such as Fehse weren't subject to the same level of scrutiny of their NCAA counterparts, and this was not a good thing.

Chances of making the NBA expressed as an arbitrary percentage: 0%

A lot of people didn't know who Sonics draft pick Peter Fehse was a couple of months ago. However, they soon learnt after his draft rights were traded for Matt Harpring and Eric Maynor. At the time, this website's player page for Peter Fehse appeared second in a Google search for Fehse's name, and, given that it was one of the few that's actually been written, people wanting to learn about Peter Fehse used it as a means of doing so. Because of this, Peter Fehse became the most viewed profile page on this website. Good times.

2013-03-19

Peter Fehse - Fehse's oft-documented career decline as a player due to incessant injury troubles saw him eventually become a coach for his final team, the lower league BSW Sixers. However, his contract was not renewed for this season, and while he certainly made at least one preseason appearance for Oberliga (fifth tier) side Halle SC 96, the club is of such a lowly status in the grand scheme of things that no information abounds as to whether he stuck.
