RidiculousUpside.com recently unveiled our new NBA D-League player positional rankings, also known as "The Prospect Pyramid." Here's how the shooting guards stack up after week two.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) Cameron Jones, Santa Cruz Warriors: With Manny Harris currently playing out a ten-day contract with the Lakers, Jones takes over the top spot. Such an honor is rightfully deserved, as Jones is arguably the most versatile and/or complete two-guard in all of the NBA D-League.

2013-14 Stats: 20.1 points (45% from the field, 41% from deep), 3.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and 1.6 steals

2) Troy Daniels, Rio Grande Valley Vipers: A streaky shooter, Daniels had an underwhelming week. Still, he stands as a perfect fit for NBA teams looking for a two-guard to spread the floor and keep opposing defenses on their toes.

2013-14 Stats: 22.5 points (41% from the field, 41% from deep), 1.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.0 steals

3) Darius Johnson-Odom, Springfield Armor: Able to provide the Armor with an offensive explosion every time he takes the court, DJO rises this week on The Prospect Pyramid.

2013-14 Stats: 22.3 points (46% from the field, 36% from deep), 3.2 assists, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.8 steals

4) Kevin Murphy, Idaho Stampede: Murphy bursts onto the scene and cements his spot on our rankings for now. The former Jazz swingman's long range prowess as of late has made him look more like Kevin Martin for Idaho.

2013-14 Stats: 17.8 points (43% from the field, 55% from deep), 1.8 assists, 5.0 rebounds, and 0.3 steals

5) DeAndre Liggins, Sioux Falls Skyforce: Last season, Liggins was a constant triple-double threat while on assignment from the OKC Thunder. Now a full-time minor leaguer, he's a nightly stat-sheet stuffer and has even turned up the dial on defense as of late.

2013-14 Stats: 15.6 points (41% from the field, 34% from deep), 5.0 assists, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.6 steals

6) Trey McKinney-Jones, Fort Wayne Mad Ants: McKinney-Jones' saw gradual increases in all of his numbers across the board this week while continuing to lead the Mad Ants in the right direction.

2013-14 Stats: 17.3 points (47% from the field, 41% from deep), 2.7 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.4 steals

7) Frank Gaines, Maine Red Claws: Gaines makes his debut on our rankings after continuing to improve while proving he can score the ball in bunches with ease.

2013-14 Stats: 18.2 points (43% from the field, 39% from deep), 1.5 assists, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.2 steals
