The shooting guard position is one of the deepest scoring positions in the league and features two of the NBA’s best in Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade. The following are our recommended SG draft rankings, which take into account projected total points as well as upside and risk. The statistical categories are based primarily on a rotisserie scoring format, which typically favors well-balanced players, but no matter what your league settings this list will be a valuable reference as you prepare for draft day.
