Andrew Bynum has hired representation and is looking to make a comeback to the NBA, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Bynum is scheduling team workouts before training camps start. The 30-year-old last played in the league during the 2013-14 season with the Indiana Pacers.

Bynum began his NBA career with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2005. He made the All-Star team in 2012 and won two championships in LA. Bynum’s attitude and work ethic, however, began to become an issue and his knees started to deteriorate as well.

The Lakers traded Bynum to the Philadelphia 76ers in the summer of 2012, but the center never suited up for the Sixers due to knee ailments. The former first-round pick signed a free agent deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers in July of 2013. He appeared in 24 games and averaged 8.4 points and 5.3 rebounds.

The Cavs traded Bynum to the Chicago Bulls in January of 2014. The Bulls quickly waived Bynum, allowing him to sign with the Pacers.

Bynum’s best season in the NBA came during his All-Star campaign in 2011-12. In 60 games that season, Bynum averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds while shooting 55.8 percent from the field.

In 418 career games, Bynum holds averages of 11.5 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.6 blocks.
