15. Luguentz Dort, Thunder
It will be interesting to see if Luguentz Dort will be the Oklahoma City Thunder’s fifth starter or if center Jaylin Williams will be. However, I’m banking on the 6-foot-3 shooting guard claiming that spot and that’s why the elite perimeter defender is on this list. If not, the Thunder will have an elite 3-and-D wing coming off the bench.
14. Tyler Herro, Heat
Unless a trade for Damian Lillard happens, it appears that Tyler Herro will be the starting shooting guard for the Miami Heat. The 6-foot-5 is a former sixth man of the year and upper tier 3-level-scorer. Whether it be for the Heat or another team, Herro will be an elite shooter.
13. OG Anunoby, Raptors
On most other teams OG Anunoby would be a small forward, but for the Toronto Raptors, he’s their shooting guard. The 6-foot-7 wing is an elite defender who’s more than just a 3-and-D scorer. Anunoby could reach All-Star status if he was in the right situation.
12. Tyrese Maxey, 76ers
The Philadelphia 76er have a young rising star Tyrese Maxey who has yet to reach his true potential. If the Sixers want to help the 6-foot-2 guard reach his true potential, then they might want to switch him to point guard and develop his playmaking more.
11. Dejounte Murray, Hawks
On other teams, Dejounte Murray would be a point guard, but the 6-foot-4 playmaker is a shooting guard for the Atlanta Hawks. Murray struggles as a shooter, but outside of that is an elite two-way guard. It will see if his shooting improves in year two of being a shooting guard.
