Not necessarily. In '09, Bosh was replaced with Mo Williams. In '10, Iverson replaced by David Lee and Roy replaced by Kaman. So, position doesn't appear to matter, though Love replaced Ming in '11 and Rondo replaced Joe Johnson in '12.
There were other G's replaced by G's in 2010 as well. I don't think position in a major consideration in replacement, just the best player left off.
