Already a pro after making his debut at the ACB level at the tender age of 15 on Ricky Rubio's former team DKV Joventut no less, Spanish wing Albert Homs had a solid week here in New York, showing an intriguing skill level for his size.
Homs has very nice size for a wing (even if he's projected by some as a guard), standing around 6-6 with long arms and a skinny frame that should fill out in time. He has a nice first step and some real fluidity to his game, moving with great ease around the floor and clearly possessing some nice talent.
Homs is pretty good with the ball. He's capable of creating his own shot and getting to the basket effectively. His shot is a bit on the streaky side at the moment, but should steady in time. He can also make plays for others, showing a nice feel for the game, even if he lacked a degree of aggression over the course of the week. He seems to be an unselfish player by nature.
Homs, who doesn't turn 16 until May, is, unsurprisingly, not a particularly polished player at this point. He still has a long ways to go from a physical development standpoint, but he has a nice framework of skills to build off, and is someone to keep an eye on over the next few years.
