The NBA trade deadline came and went without any big moves, but there's still plenty of speculation swirling around all facets of the NBA.

Whether it's a star returning to the court after a longterm injury or a franchise looking to acquire pieces in order to make the playoffs, there's plenty of news and rumors to soak up coming out of the All-Star break.

Let's dig into some of the hottest rumors on the hardwood.

The Andrew Bynum acquisition for the Philadelphia 76ers has been a nightmare so far, as the seven-footer has yet to suit up for Philly.

The Sixers are 22-31 and have fallen to fourth place in the Atlantic Division and desperately need a healthy Bynum on the floor, which could come sooner than later.

According to John Mitchell of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Bynum has returned to practice with his teammates.

The long and protracted wait by the 76ers to get center Andrew Bynum on the floor ended Friday as the center participated in a spirited practice, according to multiple sources.

According to at least two of the sources, Bynum, who has been working out with coaches and team medical personnel exclusively, participated in a five-on-five scrimmage with teammates. Just how long the scrimmage lasted was unknown.
