CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Bobcats coach Paul Silas is hoping one way or another there's still a Silas coaching in Charlotte next season.
Silas' contract expires in July and he's leaning toward coaching one more season if the Bobcats decide to renew his deal. Ultimately he hopes to keep the seat warm for his son Stephen Silas, his assistant coach, to take his job when he retires.
The 68-year-old Paul Silas' goal is to see this rebuilding project through and get the NBA-worst Bobcats (7-39) to a point where they're set up to be a playoff contender every season
Rod Higgins, the Bobcats president of basketball operations, says while Silas has done a "good job" with what he has to work with, it's still too early to say who'll be coaching next year.
