As we close in on March, and fantasy playoffs, it’s a good time to evaluate the power rankings at each position in the NBA. We have now passed an active trade deadline that impacted a number of teams and players, as we have already seen in our Point Guard Power Rankings . Some of the shooting guards making these power rankings weren’t even considered a couple months ago, while others have seen their stock drop because of added depth on their depth chart.

Perhaps the biggest wild card when ranking the shooting guards moving forward is Tracy McGrady. In very limited action for the Knicks, he’s looked as healthy as we’ve seen him in years, but still needs to find his niche in the Knicks’ offense (is there one?). Meanwhile, players like Kevin Martin and Trever Ariza are now splitting time in a crowded Houston back court.

We’ll see a couple names doubled over from the point guard rankings because of eligibility. Here are the power rankings or shooting guards.
