Silas says he's not been contacted

Former Charlotte Hornets coach Paul Silas told the Charlotte Observer he'd be interested in coaching the Charlotte Bobcats, but had not been contacted by the team as of 5 p.m.

Silas is living near Lake Norman.

"Nothing is happening,'' Silas said, when asked if he's the replacement for Larry Brown, who left the job Wednesday. "But that's the one (NBA) job I would be interested in. If i had to go somewhere else, no, but I'd like to coach again here.''

Silas said he didn't plan to contact the Bobcats about the opening.

"Not really. If they're interested I think they should contact me,'' Silas said.

Some other possibilities, based on discussions in coaching circles: Mike Woodson, Sam Mitchell, Darrell Walker, Mike Brown and Eddie Jordan.

They aren't going to contact him, unless he's willing to do it for cheap! They are probably passing it onto Hamers or whatever his name is. He can also hold his breath waiting on Carmelo or Chris Paul.

Someone is telling a fib.It was announced that MJ made silas the interim manager 2 hours after LB resigned,which was early this morning.Bonnell posted this article around noon.Don't writers comfirm their sources BEFORE PUTTING IT ONLINE OR IN PRINT? I dislike silas already if he was telling a lie!!
