After two years away from the NBA, former Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum may be considering a comeback.
The two-time NBA champion has been quiet once his short stint with the Indiana Pacers came to an end in 2014. Bynum played in only two games for the Pacers before being shut down due to persistent knee soreness.
Recently, TMZ Sports caught up with Bynum and asked he whether he’d considering making an NBA comeback:
After being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers back in 2012, Bynum’s career in the NBA was basically over. The former Lakers center’s knee problems finally caught up with him in Philadelphia with the two-time NBA champion having to sit out the entire 2012-13 NBA season.
Bynum tried to resurrect his career signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2013. The veteran center signed a two-year deal with the team, but things didn’t work out with Bynum becoming a locker room cancer. Bynum was eventually traded to the Chicago Bulls in a deal for Luol Deng and was promptly waived paving the way for him to sign with the Pacers for the rest of the 2013-14 NBA season.
A few rumors began to circulate about Bynum potentially returning to the Lakers or signing with the Los Angeles Clippers after the 2013-14 campaign, but nothing came to fruition.
