Ayton trails behind Shawn Marion, Amare Stoudemire, Larry Nance, Neal Walk, Mark West, and Charles Barkley in Suns history for an all-time leading rebounder.

In order to catch up to the next person in line Charles Barkley, he will need to grab 232 more rebounds to tie with him and 233 to pass him this season. With only 22 games left in the regular season, this stat seems like it might happen next season unless Ayton goes on an absurd rebounding run.
