NBA 2K23 Best Shooting Guard (SG) Builds (Next-Gen/Current-Gen)

Shooting Guards (SGs) are responsible for scoring points and stealing the ball from the opposing attackers on defense. In NBA 2K23, a good SG will always be able to transition quickly between offense and defense. They can also switch to being a Small Forward during a game, commonly known as acting as a Swingman.

Suffice to say, Shooting Guards are essential on every team, especially if you are looking to land some three-pointers. The position requires players who are quick and efficient and are able to keep the scorecard ticking.

The following guide will tell you some of the best Shooting Guard builds in NBA 2K23.
