List Rules Vote up the best long-range shooters in the league today.

Who are the best 3-point shooters currently in the NBA? Having a player who is awesome at hitting 3-pointers gives any NBA team a huge advantage right now. Many of the top 3-point shooters who are currently playing in the NBA are among the overall top current NBA players, too, including players like Stephen Curry, James Harden, Klay Thompson, and Kyrie Irving, who all ruled the 3pt world in the 2018-2019 season as well. 

The highly skilled players on this list can make or break a team's performance on the court. They are long-range shooters who can score from anywhere behind the 3-point line or even from half court. These active 3-point shooters are experts at pull-up jumpers and spot-up shots. 

Vote for the leading current NBA three-point shooters you think are the most important, key players for their respective teams, and if your favorite player isn't listed, add him. You can also re-rank this list of NBA 3-point shooters in any order you want. After voting, head over and check out these lists of the best current scorers and best current defenders, along with the best (worst) NBA floppers playing today.
