Best Potential Landing Spots for Andrew Bynum to Resume NBA Career

Andrew Bynum's NBA career is not over. 

Although he's been on an unrelenting downward spiral ever since he was traded away from the Los Angeles Lakers in August 2012, he's still a 7-footer with plenty of talent. We're not that far removed from his 2012 All-Star appearance, after all.

Unfortunately, Bynum's career has proceeded in rather strange fashion since then.

The big man failed to record even a single second of action while he was with the Philadelphia 76ers during the 2012-13 season. He then signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2013 offseason, but failed to make much of an impact in his new home, was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team and was subsequently put on the trading block.

After the Cavs traded Bynum and three future draft picks for Luol Deng, the Chicago Bulls took only a few hours to officially waive him, per the team's website. 

Now, Bynum hits the open market once more, but he isn't exactly an attractive addition. He comes rife with question marks and red flags, especially after Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported that he didn't even like playing basketball. 

But that won't stop a team from offering him a minimum contract and allowing him to take the first step in the process toward redemption. 

These are the five teams that have already emerged as the best potential landing spots, but keep in mind that they're ranked from Bynum's perspective. Team needs don't matter too much, as it's all about him putting himself in the best situation to further his career.
