In the first case, they can be the size of a “larger” position (SG, SF, PF, C). For example, a small forward the size of a power forward (according to NBA standards from about 205 cm). Such players can play both positions, which makes them very versatile (the term combo forward is sometimes used for SF / PFs ).
Examples of tweeners are:
- Forwards: Fragiskos Alvertis , Michael Beasley , Tobias Harris , Rashard Lewis , Lamar Odom , Donté Greene , Toni Kukoč
- Guards: Shaun Livingston , Rodney Stuckey , Theodoros Papaloukas , Zoran Planinić , Magic Johnson , Giannis Antetokounmpo

- Forwards: Charles Barkley , Jason Maxiell , Chuck Hayes , DeJuan Blair , Draymond Green , Jae Crowder , Kenneth Faried
- Guards: Jason Terry , Fred Jones , Eddie House , Allen Iverson , Avery Bradley , Monta Ellis
