The home team is pulling out all the stops to get Dwight Howard in Rocket red next season, and a hire we've learned the team has made could be a another step in that direction.

Eyewitness Sports has learned the Rockets hired former Orlando Magic strength and conditioning coach Joe Rogowski. Rogowski was with the Magic during the Dwight Howard years.

Free agency begins July 1, and the Rockets are one of a handful of teams that are making a serious run at Howard. The Mavericks, Hawks and his current team, the Lakers, are also in the running.
