2021 NBA free agent rankings: Top shooting guards available right now

- by


JJ Redick / Last team: Dallas

JJ Redick

In the final stages of his career, but injuries could have made him look worse than he was last season. Still one of the best shooters in the league.

2020/21 stats: 7.4 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 1.2 apg, 39.7 FG%, 37.1 3P%
Career earnings: $118,345,008
Agent: Aaron Mintz

Wesley Matthews / Last team: LA Lakers

Coming off a poor season with the Lakers, but a solid defender who can occasionally get hot from beyond the arc. High-effort player.

2020/21 stats: 4.8 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 0.9 apg, 35.3 FG%, 33.5 3P%
Career earnings: $109,969,682
Agent: Jeff Austin

Gerald Green / Last team: Houston

Still an explosive athlete, but not at the ridiculous level he was in his prime. That loss of quickness and vertical leaping ability have made his other flaws, inconsistent shooting primarily, glaring.

2018/19 stats: 9.2 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 0.5 apg, 40.0 FG%, 35.4 3P%
Career earnings: $21,580,455
Agent: James Dunleavy

Tyler Johnson / Last team: Brooklyn

Feisty defender despite lack of size who has good athleticism and plays energetically. Respectable outside shooter with his feet set.

2020/21 stats: 5.4 ppg, 2.0 rpg, 1.2 apg, 39.3 FG%, 36.4 3P%
Career earnings: $34,031,924
Agent: Austin Brown

Avery Bradley / Team option / Last team: Houston

Excellent point-of-attack defender who can hound opposing guards 94 feet. Solid shooter with feet set.

2020/21 stats: 6.4 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 1.7 apg, 37.4 FG%, 32.7 3P%
Career earnings: $61,486,872
Agent: Charles Briscoe

Jamal Crawford / Last team: Brooklyn

Played one game in 2019-20 and zero since then. Now 41, but if he were inserted into a random game tomorrow, you wouldn’t be surprised to still see him get some buckets.

2018/19 stats: 7.9 ppg, 1.3 rpg, 3.6 apg, 39.7 FG%, 33.2 3P%
Career earnings: $124,283,187
Agent: Aaron Goodwin

Andre Roberson / Last team: Brooklyn

Prior to missing two years due to injuries, he was one of the best defenders in the NBA thanks to length and absurd instincts. May have lost a step due to the injuries, though.

2020/21 stats: 1.2 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 0.8 apg, 14.3 FG%, 12.5 3P%
Career earnings: $36,077,231
Agent: Bill Duffy

Garrison Mathews / Restricted free agent / Last team: Washington

Specializes as a spot-up shooter and has the ability to get hot in a flash, though lacks the athleticism to be a nightly difference-maker.

2020/21 stats: 5.5 ppg, 1.4 rpg, 0.4 apg, 40.9 FG%, 38.4 3P%
Career earnings: $767,620
Agent: Chris Patrick

Langston Galloway / Last team: Phoenix

Langston Galloway

2-guard in a point guard’s body who is usually out there to spot up from three and knock down shots. Coming off his best shooting season ever.

2020/21 stats: 4.8 ppg, 1.1 rpg, 0.7 apg, 44.9 FG%, 42.4 3P%
Career earnings: $29,369,108
Agent: Michael Siegel

Shaquille Harrison / Restricted free agent / Last team: Denver

High-energy swingman who makes a big impact defensively when given the opportunity.

2020/21 stats: 2.1 ppg, 1.4 rpg, 0.7 apg, 33.3 FG%, 18.8 3P%
Career earnings: $4,091,542
Agent: Todd Ramasar

DaQuan Jeffries / Restricted free agent / Last team: Houston

2-guard with a solid nose for scoring but lacking athletically and as a shooter.

2020/21 stats: 4.1 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 0.7 apg, 41.7 FG%, 29.9 3P%
Career earnings: $2,344,.007
Agent: Erik Kabe

Armoni Brooks / Restricted free agent / Last team: Houston

2-guard who flashed impressive scoring and shooting last season late in the campaign.

2020/21 stats: 11.2 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 1.5 apg, 40.6 FG%, 38.2 3P%
Career earnings: $135,362
Agent: EJ Kusnyer

Skylar Mays / Restricted free agent / Last team: Atlanta

Smooth combo guard who can do some scoring but lacks in burst.

2020/21 stats: 3.8 ppg, 1.1 rpg, 0.9 apg, 44.9 FG%, 35.0 3P%
Career earnings: $532,218
Agent: Kieran Piller

Amir Coffey / Restricted free agent / Last team: LA Clippers

Guard/forward type with great size and very good athleticism, though not very polished offensively as far as shooting and ball-handling.

2020/21 stats: 3.2 ppg, 1.0 rpg, 0.5 apg, 43.7 FG%, 41.1 3P%
Career earnings: $658,410
Agent: Javon Phillips
