Rockets To Hire Hakeem Olajuwon To Work With Centers
Dwight Howard is all about feeling wanted and loved, and the Houston Rockets are going out of their way to appease Dwight on every level.
The Houston Chronicle is reporting that the Rockets are going to hire former Rockets great Hakeem Olajuwon to work with the centers on the team.
Olajuwon will work with Howard and Omer Asik.
Olajuwon’s duties and title are being discussed, and he will spend much of the year at his home in Jordan. But he will work with Rockets interior players, as he does with big men around the NBA each offseason, as a team employee. “We are going to bring him in as full-time as is possible,” Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said Sunday. “It’s not done, but we have mutual interest to get it done, and we’ve had some early discussions. We want him to work with Dwight and Omer (Asik), and he wants to do that.”
