A term describing a player who can be used effectively as either a shooting guard or a small forward. This position is also commonly referred to as "guard/forward".

Sporting Charts explains Swingman

Shooting guards and small forwards typically have similar roles in a basketball court anyway, especially when they are around the 6'6" to 6'8" height range. Thus, most players listed in these positions can be classified as swingmen.

Some of the best NBA players who have been labeled as swingmen include John Havlicek, Rick Barry, George Gervin, Clyde Drexler, and Paul Pierce.
