Within the Spanish team Pere Tomas was among the top players, and certainly the most consistent. Not only with his 15 points per game, but also his very strong rebounding at over 8 per game. Tomas has a decently sized and strong frame, although he lacks the agility and athleticism to be considered a great NBA prospect.
It says a lot about the tournament he played, being able to reach such a high scoring average when he’s not really a dominant scoring-type of player, being much more an intelligent hard working team player, showing good toughness and confidence. You won’t see him forcing many shots, as he’s actually not a very good shooter, being very irregular from 3-point distance (27%), and not possessing a very quick release, which makes it difficult for him to shoot off dribble. He did convert 92% of his free throws however. Tomas is not a reliable enough ball handler to bring the ball up half court. He’s good enough for some dribbles to slash to the rim though, but only occasionally.
Truth be told, Tomas is a player who’s able to do many things on the court without excelling in any of them. He’s an OK passer on the perimeter, but is relatively limited when driving further. He did take his match-ups into the post several times, from where he can use his superior strength, turn around jumpers and even jump hooks to score. He also has good awareness and positions himself excellently, whether it is to catch and shoot an open three or to grab an offensive rebound.
Tomas shows a very good effort overall, running up and down the floor consistently, while giving good intensity on both the defensive end and on the glass. He boxes out for rebounds, usually also pursuing offensive rebounds out of his area.
On defense he’s certainly a solid part of the team, aware when on help side, contesting shots, and giving it all in order not to get beat on the perimeter or in the post. His average quickness and lateral speed nonetheless limit his possible success against some quicker opponents.
Tomas is a blue collar type of player who may not have great upside but can regardless emerge as a very effective player in the ACB league.
