NBA D-League Player Rankings Week 12
The more things change, the more they stay the same is the theme for this week’s player rankings. The top of the rankings remained the same while the middle or below of the Top-10 rankings showed some decent movement, with a new face making their Top-10 debut this season.
Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Ryan Kelly enters the Top-10 for the first time this season. He is in an elite club with Skyforce power forward Keith Benson, as one of two players averaging 20-plus points and over 10 rebounds a contest.
Meanwhile, Hollis Thompson made the biggest jump this week, climbing to fourth overall after being ranked eighth just last week.
For those unfamiliar with our voting process, here’s how it works. Each of our contributors fills out a ballot ranking the Top-15 prospects in the D-League (with the exception of draft-and-stash players as their rights are held exclusively by an NBA team). A No. 1 ranking earns 15 points, No. 2 receives 14 and so forth. The Top-10 players with the highest cumulative ranking make the cut each week.
