    I hope he will be able to continue to workout with NBA players seeking to add to their game

    I was thinking the same thing. Another option is Rick Barry. I heard him last season during an interview about how he could teach his understand style and turn anyone into an 80% shooter! I'd take that for both Howard, Asik and Smith.

    Having Hakeem as part of the Rox again will be GREAT! Would love to see him working the team on both offense and defense.

    I imagine Hakeem has one job and one job only:

    Make Dwight Howard as great as he can be.

    I agree. Most fans underrate FT shooting because its not as sexy as the Dream Shake but in Howards case it would have a major impact.

    Improving his FT shooting may be hopeless like it was for Shaq and after 9 years in the league so may trying to change his offensive game.

    Didn't the Dream say that he would sign with the rockets if Dwight signed with the rockets?

    Finally! Glad to hear that Morey wants to Dream to work with both Asik and Howard. I am sure Asik will be happy to hear about this.

    Will this force every superstar who wants to work with Dream too sign with the Rockets? If so, Lebron 2014!

    Dream should get a lifetime contract as well as Morey.
