Looking for shooting guards? Whether you are in a daily, weekly, or season-long fantasy basketball league, here are some tips on who to pick.

1.       Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat
Wade’s 22.1 points per game were his lowest average since his rookie season. He tied for 20th in field goal percentage with .497. Wade had knee surgery in the offseason after missing 17 games during the year.

2.       Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers
In his 16th season, Bryant continued to excel. He finished third in total points scored. Bryant also averaged 4.6 assists and 5.4 rebounds per game. But he may have trouble matching these numbers with the Lakers’ additions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash.

3.       James Harden, Houston Rockets
2011-12’s Sixth Man of the Year winner now gets to start after stunning trade from Oklahoma City. Increased minutes mean increased numbers, particularly since Harden will now be main scoring option instead of having to defer to Thunder’s Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. In 2011-12, Harden was 12th in three-pointers while scoring 16.8 points per game with a .491 field goal percentage and .846 free throw percentage.

4.       Paul George, Indiana Pacers
The tenth overall pick in the 2010 draft started every game in his second season and finished sixth in the league in steals. George averaged 12.1 points and 5.6 rebounds per game.

5.       Joe Johnson, Brooklyn Nets
Johnson’s scoring has gone down in the last couple of years, though his points-per-game average of 18.8 was 18th best and  he was eighth in three-pointers, but Johnson figures to get more chances to score now that his point guard is Deron Williams.

6.       Monta Ellis, Milwaukee  Bucks
Ellis was tied for 14th in points scored for the 2011-12 season, but averaged 21.9 in 37 games with Golden State and 17.6 in 21 games after being traded to Milwaukee.  He was 18th in assists, with similar averages before and after the trade.

7.       Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors
The 11th pick in the 2011 draft averaged 12.5 points per game as a rookie, but 18.1 in 29 games as a starter after Monta Ellis was traded and Stephen Curry was injured.  Thompson finished 15th in three-pointers.

8.       Marcus Thornton, Sacramento Kings
In his first full season in Sacramento, Thornton averaged 18.7 points per game.  He was 14th in free throw percentage with .865 and tied for 16th in three-pointers.

9.       Wesley Matthews, Portland Trail Blazers
Matthews’ scoring dropped to 13.7 per game in 2011-12 from 15.9 the previous season, but he tied for fifth in three-pointers, was 14th in steals and finished 20th in free throw percentage.

10.   Tyreke Evans, Sacramento Kings
Evans was rookie of the year in 2009-10, when he was in the top 20 in both assists and steals and averaged 20.1 points per game.   But his overall numbers have gone down since then.  Though Isaiah Thomas has taken over at guard in Sacramento, Evans may have PG eligibility in some leagues.
