List Rules Only current NBA Three-Point Shooters. No retired or collegiate players.

Who are the best three-point shooters currently in the NBA? Certainly, this list includes some of the best three-point shooters playing right now, and potentially some of the top NBA players of all time. Check out these lists of best current scorers and best current defenders, along with the best (worst) NBA floppers playing today. Having an awesome three-point shooter gives any NBA team a huge advantage.

The top three-point shooters who are currently playing in the NBA are certainly among the overall top current NBA players too (Stephen Curry, James Harden, Klay Thompson, and Kyrie Irving come to mind immediately). 

The highly skilled NBA 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 three-point line or even from half court. These active three-point shooters are experts at pull up jumpers and spot up shots. 

Vote for the current NBA three-point shooters who 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.
