Peterson guided Milano to the 1987 Euroleague title, the 1985 Korac Cup trophy, four Italian league crowns and two Italian Cups.

WHAT THEY SAY...
"I am truly honoured and happy about this. It is also a humbling thing seeing all the great coaches in the lost, who they are and what they have done. I am like a fan and also a nostalgic. I admire and like coaches, I think they are great people, knowing about their basketball philosophy. I am a big fan of these people and being with them is a tremendous honour. I am very happy to be on the list."
