Here are the top 25 scorers in the league at the SG position right now. Yes, I realize that not everything is about scoring but it's an easy way to compile the best players at the position for the most part.

1. Harden
2. Derozan
3. Afflalo
4. Ellis
5. Dragic (not sure why he's listed as a SG)
6. Martin
7. Thompson
8. Crawford (Jamal)
9. Hayward
10. Matthews
11. Gordon
12. Johnson
13. Henderson
14. Meeks
15. Waiters
16. Stephenson
17. Oladipo
18. Green
19. Crawford (Jordan)
20. Mayo
21. Manu
22. Korver
23. VC
24. Bellinelli
25. Foye

+ Butler, Kobe & Wade (missing from the list due to injuries)

IMO Kobe, Wade and Harden (and a totally healthy Manu) are obviously at the head of the class... but after those 3... I'm not sure that there's another guy on that list that I'd want over DD (fine, so maybe I'm a homer). Stephenson, Hayward and Afflalo would be his direct competition for spots #4 and #5 I think....

Thoughts? Where do you think he ranks?

I think Harden, Ellis, Afflalo, Stephenson, Bryant, Thompson, and Matthews are better players than Demar currently. I didn't include Dragic and Hayward, who are also better than Demar, but aren't really SG's.
