Overshadowed by the phenomenal rookie season of Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic is the impressive rookie campaign of Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton.

And while it will come down to Doncic and Ayton for Rookie of the Year consideration, with Doncic a big favorite, Ayton says there are bigger things to him than the Rookie of the Year honor.

“Right now I think there’s bigger things than Rookie of the Year for me,” Ayton said, during an interview with The Step Back’s Ti Windisch.

“This is a franchise that needs a winning culture, and I think I have bigger things ahead other than a Rookie of the Year. I’m trying to change a whole city around.”

Ayton is having a solid season, averaging 16.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game for the Suns, who own the NBA’s second worst record.
