Only one projected lottery pick in 2016 shooting guard draft prospect rankings

In the most recent draft, only one true shooting guard, Devin Booker, was selected in the lottery. Rashad Vaughn and R.J. Hunter also went in the first round. This year, we're projecting just one lottery pick and three other first-rounders. In other words, the crop looks pretty similar to last season's.

Keep in mind that NBA teams have been moving toward using 2s (shooting guards) and 3s (small forwards) interchangeably and labeling them as wings. So in some cases, these players will be competing for attention with the players on our list of small forwards, coming soon.
