Devereaux Peters (born October 8, 1989) is an American basketball forward with the Indiana Fever of the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) and WBC Dynamo Novosibirsk of the Russian women's league.[1]

Peters played at Notre Dame, where she was Big East Conference Defensive Player of the Year in 2012. She led a Notre Dame squad that finished second in the 2012 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament.[2]

Peters made her WNBA debut on May 20, 2012, scoring 3 points and grabbing 4 rebounds in a win over the Phoenix Mercury.[3]

Peters quickly became the first power forward off the bench, and led the team in field goal percentage through sixteen games. In July, Peters broke a finger on her left hand, forcing her to miss three games.[4]

Peters would remain the primary backup in 2013, leading the Lynx in blocked shots. She played a key role in the Lynx's second WNBA championship, serving as a reliable defensive presence.

On February 2, 2016, Peters was traded to the Indiana Fever in exchange for Natasha Howard.[5]
