According to Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida, Hall of Fame center Hakeem Olajuwon believes Dwight Howard will re-sign with the Lakers this summer.
Olajuwon said Howard, while still with the Orlando Magic in 2011, told him that he wanted to join the Lakers.
"I think so," said Olajuwon. "I think so, because that is where he wanted to go. He wanted to go there."
The former Rockets legend helped train Howard during the 2010 and 2011 off-seasons near Houston. Howard spent last summer recovering from back surgery.
While Howard, in the final year of his contract, has yet to state his long-term intentions, Olajuwon said he planned to visit with the Lakers center during All-Star weekend in Houston.
