The 30-year-old hired representation to schedule team workouts before the start of training camp. Bynum’s last appeared in the NBA was in the 2013-14 season, where he spent time with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers.
Bynum is well known for his seven-year tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers during their back to back championship run during the 2008-09 season and the 2009-10 season. His best season came in the 2011-12 season where he averaged 18.7 points per game and 11.8 rebounds per game and earned his only all-star selection.
While Bynum was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers the next offseason, knee injuries prevented him playing a single game with the team. He only managed to appear in 26 more games after the injuries.
After not being in the league for 5 years, Andrew Bynum now seeks another chance at playing at a high level for a team. His knee-injuries will be a big concern but he could possibly showcase that he is ready to make an impact on an NBA roster.
