What is Cornerman?

A term describing a player who can be used as either a small forward or a power forward. The cornerman is also known as a "stretch-forward".

Sporting Charts explains Cornerman

A player is typically deemed a cornerman when he possesses the style of a small forward and the height or built of a power forward. The cornerman's more conventional position is the small forward, but he plays the power forward position if his team decides to go small (sacrificing height in favor of speed and range).

Some of the greatest cornermen in the history of the NBA include Larry Bird, Elgin Baylor, LeBron James, Kevin Garnett, and James Worthy.
