Expectant before the start of a new season in which he will discover a new league like the ACB and will be able to debut in a competition at the Euroleague level. This is Daulton Hommes, one of the five signings that Baskonia has made this season. The American ‘four’ recognized this morning during his presentation as a Barça player that he feels “excited and happy” to be in the azulgrana team and he understands that he is facing “a great opportunity”.

The Barça insider has revealed that his agent “has only told him good things” when finalizing his signing for the Gasteiz squad and for now, he is more than satisfied with what he has seen to date in these first training sessions. “I am very happy with the team we have. We are very comfortable in training. I really want to start in the ACB and the Euroleague. I want the best for the team”, she pointed out by way of presentation.

The player from Washington, who will wear number 34 as he has done in previous teams during his career, considers that he can provide “versatility”, although he is clear that his main weapon and where he can do the most damage is the outside shot. “My forte is shooting three.”

In addition, the former player of the Austin Spurs of the G-League is considered a “athletic player who can defend well“. Without fear of those strong and physical pivots that abound in the Euroleague. Able to face them. Of course, his main virtue and what he has been signed for is his ability to open the field thanks to his lethal shot. “My strong is that, open the field, although I can also play near the ‘painting’ and help on the rebound”, he added in this regard.

“The coach asks me to play as ‘four’ and to open the court”

However, the team prefers him on the outside as he has revealed. “The coach asks me to play as a ‘four’ and to open the court.” This has also been hinted at by Félix Fernández. Despite the fact that Hommes arrived to fill the gap left by Alec Peters after his departure to Olympiacos, the sports director understands that they are “different players”. “They may have similar conditions or aspects, but they are different.”

The Barça sports director considers the North American power forward to be “a very complete player, with a very good three-point shot. He can open up the field and give other players options to develop their game”. The person in charge of making the Barça squad also extols “the physique” and the fact that he is still a very young player, with a lot of room for improvement and progression ahead.
