Hakeem Olajuwon expects to work out with Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe

Mike Stobe

Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon wants to help the Pistons' big men, as he does each offseason with big men around the NBA.

It was in the middle of May when news started circulating that Andre Drummond planned to work with The Dream over the summer:

Hall of Fame center Hakeem Olajuwon, one of the game's all-time great offensive players, is expected to work with the Pistons' center-forward over the summer to help him with his offensive game, which is still in the infant stages.

Almost two weeks ago now, Chris Tomasson tweeted that Olajuwon expected to help Drummond and Greg Monroe:

DrumMonroe are on their way to Las Vegas for USA basketball's mini camp from July 22-25, so maybe they'll stop in Houston afterward. While they should get plenty of useful pointers from Rasheed Wallace now that he's on the coaching staff, it can't hurt to supplement that with tutelage from another one of the all-time greats.

Olajuwon is known to help NBA big men around the league each offseason, including JaVale McGee last summer, who increased his production in 2012-2013.

The two might as well get the help while they still can. Olajuwon is currently in discussions with the Houston Rockets on becoming a full-time mentor to Dwight Howard and Omer Asik.
