West Coast 2009 Rankings: Shooting Guards

Avery Bradley, Anthony Marshall and Michael Snaer are among the top shooting guards in the west for 2009...

The 2009 shooting guard list is very strong at the top, but then fades quite a bit. This isn't a deep class at this point and there are few high major prospects. Bradley gets a very slight edge for the number one ranking as of now. A terrific athlete, Bradley is a great competitor with the ability to guard mulitple positions. His shot was a question mark last year, but he's become more consistent in the 16-17 foot range. Snaer is right behind Bradley and may overtake him at some point. Snaer has ideal size for a two-guard and he's the best shooter on this list Marshall is perhaps the most versatile player in the group. He does a lot of different things to help his team win and he's also a very good athlete. His shot is just fair at this point and that is an area where he needs to improve. Cunningham has good ball skills for a shooting guard, as well as a very nice frame with good length. Haws is a well-rounded prospect who can do a lot of things well.
