Journeyman Elton Brand can add yet another milestone to his stellar 15-year career as he surpassed Spencer Haywood for 60th on the NBA all-time rebounding list.

The Atlanta Hawks big man needed only one board entering Wednesday’s game in New Orleans, as he and Haywood were tied with 8,675 rebounds, and he finished with six against the Pelicans.

Brand is now in sole possession of 60th on the all-time list with 8,681 career rebounds.

Leroy Ellis sits at 59th with 8,709 rebounds.
