The Phoenix Suns haven't been a dominant rebounding team for quite some time now and, if the preseason is any indication, that won't change anytime soon.
The Suns added frontcourt players Luis Scola and Jermaine O'Neal to the team but still the team struggles to rebound effectively, especially on the defensive side.
Just in the preseason, the Suns gave up around 13 offensive boards per game and almost 45 total rebounds per game.
Comparing these averages to last year's team rankings, the Suns would be worse on both fronts and one of the worst rebounding teams in the entire NBA.
Rebounding numbers that low would be extremely detrimental and really have no reason to be so low considering the players in the frontcourt.
Marcin Gortat, Jermaine O'Neal, Markieff Morris, Luis Scola, Michael Beasley and even Wesley Johnson are definitely better rebounders than the stats show.
For the Suns sake, they better hope it's more a reflection of the minutes played by guys who were fighting for spots and not a trend among the regulars.
