Tweener

What is Tweener?

Derived from the word "between", this term refers to a hybrid player-one who is able to play multiple positions but might lack all the physical characteristics or skill to play a single position exclusively.

Sporting Charts explains Tweener - basketball

For example, a player might be too small to play power forward, but at the same time might also lack quickness or the ball-handling skills to play small forward.

Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are examples of tweeners because neither of them plays small forward or shooting guard exclusively. That being said, both are considered among the greatest players ever to play basketball.
