Andrew Bynum last played NBA basketball during the 2013-14 season, when he spent time with the Cavaliers and Pacers, appearing in 26 total games that season.

That's according to a report from The Athletic's Shams Charania, and via a video of Bynum working out that was recently posted to social media.

Bynum was a two-time champion and an All-Star with the Lakers from 2005-12.

He was part of the Lakers' squads that won back-to-back National Basketball Association championships in the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons, though he was limited to only 18 and 23 games, respectively. Stay tuned for more info about Bynum's comeback.

While Bynum was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers the next offseason, knee injuries prevented him playing a single game with the team.

The Cavaliers traded him to the Chicago Bulls on January 6, 2014 and he was waived the next day.

The 7-0 center last appeared in the National Basketball Association in 2013-14 when he combined to play 26 games with the Cavaliers and Pacers. With a solid average 15 points and 8 rebounds per game in that 2010 season, it looked like the then-22-year-old was about to dominate the League.
