Each week, NBADLeague.com will update the Prospect Watch, our list of the top 30 Prospects currently in the NBA D-League. Our rankings are a combination of upside and experience, potential and production. The rankings are compiled by the editors at NBADLeague.com.
WRIGHT LEAPS INTO TOP 5, TEXAS DUO DOMINATES
Maine's Chris Wright -- perhaps the league's most consistent highlight -- was stellar in both Red Claws victories over the weekend and he moved into the top 5. Elsewhere, in Texas, Chris Douglas-Roberts and Devin Ebanks are proving to be the league's best duo. Both have yet to score less than 20 points in a game and they find themselves checking in at No. 3 and No. 4 respectively.
No. 21 OTHYUS JEFFERS -- FORWARD -- IOWA
Jeffers was not in the Preseason Prospect Watch but he immediately proved he's a guy that deserves mention. And if he keeps playing like he did over the weekend, he'll quickly rise higher than No. 21. In two games versus Tulsa, the Iowa swingman averaged 29.5 points, 13.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists. He shot an impressive 52.5 percent from the floor, but did commit 10 turnovers.
No. 1 MALCOLM THOMAS -- NOV. 23 VS. RIO GRANDE VALLEY
Malcolm Thomas left no doubt that he is the the No. 1 overall Prospect in this talent-rich league on Saturday when he went off for 36 points (on 12-for-17 shooting) and 18 rebounds in 41 minutes. When it comes to being effective in the paint, Thomas showed again that he is a cut above the rest.
SEEING IS BELIEVING
In his NBA D-League debut, Seth Curry did not disappoint. The brother of NBA superstar Stephen Curry scored a Santa Cruz-record 36 points -- all in the final three quarters. Watch some of his highlights below.
Prev. Rank: 23

KNOCKING ON THE DOOR
RICHARD HOWELL -- FORWARD -- IDAHO
After a stellar opening weekend, a case could be made for Howell being in the top 30. For now, as a result of his relatively small body of work, he remains on the outside looking in. Barely. In two games this weekend, the 6-foot-8 NC State product averaged 21.0 points and 12.5 boards. Even more impressive was that he shot 18-for-25 (72 percent) from the floor.
