Post Summer Rankings: 2004 SGs

The shooting guards in the class of 2004 don't appear to be particularly deep. There's some good talent at the top, but there's a question as to how many players will ultimately end up at the high major level...

DeMarcus Nelson heads up the list of shooting guards, but there's not much separating him from the next couple guys. Nelson has great range on his shot and he's an explosive athlete. Josh Shipp is also a terrific shooter and plays well within a team concept. Arron Afflalo might end up playing at both guard positions. He has a very good feel for the game and he won't miss many open looks beyond the stripe. Tim Pierce could end up a small forward, but he's got good ball skills and a very quick release on his shot. He has deep range, but needs to work on shot selection. Bryce Taylor is able to score from anywhere on the court, but needs to work on the other aspects of his game.
