Default Rockets are hiring Olajuwon

Having awoken to find that their signing of Dwight Howard was not all a dream, the Rockets were close Sunday to bringing The Dream back to the organization.

Hakeem Olajuwon, a key part of the Rockets’ recruiting efforts to land Howard and a large part of the festivities on Saturday after Howard signed, will rejoin the Rockets in an official capacity for the first time since he spent the final season of his career with the Toronto Raptors.

Olajuwon’s duties and title are still being discussed and he will continue to spend much of the year at his home in Jordan. But he will work with the Rockets interior players, as he does with big men around the NBA each off season, as a team employee.

Default Re: Rockets are hiring Olajuwon

The Houston Rockets are working to hire Hakeem Olajuwon to work with Dwight Howard and Omer Asik, general manager Daryl Morey told The Houston Chronicle.

Olajuwon, 50, has become a tutor for NBA big men but the Rockets want their all-time leading scorer to mentor their current centers as an official team employee.

"We are going to bring him in as full-time as is possible," Morey told the newspaper Sunday. "It's not done, but we have mutual interest to get it done, and we've had some early discussions.
